Best Use of Bacon Entree’ Winner!

We knew we were brilliant when we decided to have a "Best use of Bacon" Tailgating Contest! Great ideas and execution every weekend utilizing bacon! And the entree' winner is... Big Orange Tailgating! Their entry was a team effort as the leader of the tailgating group gave credit to Amanda Wright as the creative and operations genius behind the Bacon Wrapped Pickle Dogs. So the great idea is a hot dog sliced, add a Claussen dill pickle, wrap in bacon and smoke. Unique enough to be delicious. Vicki Johnson, the creative and decor leader of the group said she thought it would be really different but ended up loving the combination. So...give it a try, it got rave reviews!
