Bacon Takedown

Critics' pick
Cook-off impresario Matt Timms and his swinecentric contest are back for the fifth year. Timms will provide 15 pounds of Hormel Black Label bacon to 24 amateur cooks, who will churn out dishes using the beloved cured meat. The contest will be judged by a panel including Travel Channel’s George Motz. A ticket grants you unlimited tastings of crispy pig; if you want to enter your own porcine creation, e-mail chilitakedown@gmail.com.
