On November 10, 2012, we competed at the first ever Bacon Bash Texas in Cranfills Gap, Texas. From the Bacon Bash Texas website:
Bacon. It’s the main reason you’re not a vegetarian. I mean, who doesn’t love bacon? Sing it with me, now… I like pig butts, and I cannot lie! Okay, okay… we know bacon doesn’t come from the butt, but we just couldn’t resist. If you’re anything like us, and you can guzzle down your fair share of the sizzlin’ meat candy, join us at Horny Toad Bar & Grill in Cranfills Gap, Texas, on November 10, 2012 at Pederson’s Natural Farms first annual Bacon Bash Texas.
And, if we didn’t have you at bacon, let’s try this… bacon, beer, bands. That’s right. You’re finding this increasingly hard to resist, and that’s natural. (Hey! Just like our bacon!) How could it get any better than that? We’ll kick off this shindig at 12:00 pm with local bands, insane amounts of ice cold beer, and bacon as far as the eye can see. With other outlandish entertainment on the agenda, this event really is the whole hog! So, don’t go bacon our hearts… with only 150 tickets available, you better grab yours before this thing sells out!
Not only is this event a great opportunity to party with both bacon and beer in hand, but it is also a charity event. All proceeds will go to Niki Covers The Cold, a charity born of the kindness and compassion of Niki Carlson shortly after her unexpected death in March of 2010. Niki dreamed of collecting and keeping blankets in her car to hand them out to folks in need. This dream became reality as the seed Niki planted in her family began to grow. It is in support of this beautiful charity that we celebrate bacon & beer… blanketing the cold as we do.
A bacon cookoff? For a good cause? Absolutely!
So, we loaded up the team, the equipment, and our expertise, headed for Cranfills Gap, and won that thing!
