If you are not serious about bacon, if you are a vegetarian, if you are vegan or you don’t eat meat – then you should probably stop reading right here.  The rest of this post is about bacon, lots of bacon.

This Saturday, September 17 – is the 2011 Bacon Bash.  Pittsburgh is home to one of the most established bacon bloggers in all of the land of bacon bloggers – Mr. Baconpants – he is serious about bacon.  I was honored to have the opportunity to sample some burgers with Mr. Baconpants and Bacon Knight earlier this summer (thanks to the folks at Chevy/GM northeast for organizing the bloggers burger event). I know very little about bacon and Mr. Baconpants helped bring me up to speed on the bacon basics.

Mr. Baconpants will be teaming up with the weekly bacon night hosts – The Harris Grill for a festival of bacon known as the Bacon Bash.  [IheartPGH Fun Fact – We <3 the Harris Grill – one of our first posts about bacon night at the Harris Grill led to our first mention in the Post-Gazette back in 2005, that was then they blogs were called web logs].
