We’re super excited about the bacon cooking demos we’ve set up for the fest.

In the first shift, Mike Gebert, king of Chicago’s spectacular food video podcast Sky Full of Bacon, will show attendees how to prepare a pork belly to make bacon at home.



In the late shift, Gary Wiviott, BBQ life coach, author of the Baconfest-approved BBQ bible Low & Slow, and founder of Chicago’s premiere culinary chat site, LTHForum.com, will demo his version of Atomic Dragon Turds, a bacon-wrapped smoked jalapeno treat.



We recommend that you check out Sky Full of Bacon and buy 1/2 dozen copies of Gary’s book!
