Bacon & Bacon Bar….
BACON. REAL BACON. LOTS OF BACON……in the TOWN THAT KNOWS HOW TO DO BACON.
Other bacon events usually give you small, sometimes overly, creative snippets of bacon. And then if you want to eat more bacon, you have to buy it. Not here, not in Smithfield, VA.
Everyone who enters the gate will get a two part "Bacon Ticket" that entitles them to a half pound of Smithfield Bacon. (pre-cooked weight, it's about 8 big premium cut thick slices) and one trip thru our Bacon Condiment Bar.
Once you get your bacon, you can eat it hot off the grill, or you can take it over to the Bacon Condiment Bar and dress it up anyway you please.
Please be patient to get your bacon, as preparing over a TON, (seriously we are not kidding) of it will take some time. We promise we will NOT RUN OUT OF BACON, we have enough for everyone to get their 1/2 lb. If the line is long, just wait a bit and come back. We will do our best to get everyone served their bacon as quickly as possible.
You will use "part-two" of your bacon ticket to enter the condiment bar. At the end of the day, if we have condiments left over, we might open it up for nibbles without a ticket, but let's make sure everyone gets their trip before you come back for seconds.
Also in case you attended the event our first year and experienced a long line for the condiment bar, we have made some changes that we hope will make your trip thru shorter.
Last time it took folks about 10-12 minutes to get thru the condiment bar area - not too bad, but we hope to make it faster this year.
