It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

My Bacon UMMMMMM

Made some bacon this past weekend and thought about taking some pics while I was packaging it.  So here they are.  I did 10 lbs with brown sugar and maple syrup.  We ate about 3 already (6 in the house) so this is whats left.  After trying to cut the first 5 lbs with a knife, I had my local deli cut the rest.  Much more consistent but I did not do a horrible job, mine was a bit thicker though.  Smoked it with apple wood. 

All three of my boys told me it was the best bacon they ever had and my wife told them that she was old and it was the best bacon she has ever had.  I thought it came out well but I am not a bacon connoisseur (for health reasons) so I appreciated their comments.  My two boys (9 and 10) want to do the next batch.  So I may get 20lbs this weekend and start the process again.  I have a few employees at the office who want some and obviously need some more for the house as I do not see this batch lasting very long.
