I am sure that we can each acknowledge that The Great Bacon Challenge can only be enriched (striped of impropriety) by strict adherence to specific judging guidelines. A few suggestions might be:

1) Judges will wear masks over BOTH eyes (hence the expression: double-blind).
2) Prior to placements being awarded, Judges will not inquire as to the name of the chef, title of the dish, or, for that matter, the name of the manufacturer of the chef’s toad.
3) Judges will belt down a slug of Jne’s special “palate-clearing wash” before tasting each entry. A Judge who is a practicing member of AA is exempt from this rule.
4) (And - My Favorite-) The Seat of Pants Rule: Judges will be seated on their pants and use only their fine palates when deliberating final placement of entries.

Feel free to add whatever your sense of impropriety dictates.
Ha ha ha ....... I like #4 also

And I think that pretty much covers a whole multitude of issues.

Cheers !!!

We haven't fill out the food form yet as the DW is out of town. But I think she will be all over the GBC (great bacon challenge) and it sounds like lots of fun. I can't say what bacon dish we will enter, don't want copycats, but it will be fantastic and we do have a Jeep if that helps! Red wine sounds good with bacon, as does bloody marys, red beer, or the infamous rattlesnake. Which is a shot of tequila, chased with a shot of tomato juice with Tabasco and salt and pepper in the juice. Then you wash it all down with a ice cold Budweiser. Great drink and they grow on you. If they don't bite you first!

Dem chairs are La-Z-Boy rocker/recliners, they go all the way back to horizontal!

BTW, just in case I forget what brand I have, the name is plastered all over the darn thing! Guess I'll need to read up on decal removal.

In the opening sequence the plane flies over Cameron Valley and makes a sweeping turn over The Alberni Inlet but swings back east toward Nanaimo before you can see the town.

Decals can be removed easily with a high quality hair dryer or a heat gun on low.

Jeff, 9am is just when the cooking begins. Which may be why so few want to compete. The eating is scheduled from 9:45-11:00. Maybe we should harass the schedule maker into a later dining time so that it's a real brunch.

The Great Bacon Challenge assures enough chow to have it's own magnetic gravity.

STMs and bacon? Synonymous!

And....the game is afoot, Watson.
