Masterbacon was a tremendous success by all accounts (IMHO). 32 total entries, 80+ people, great venue, awesome pictures, lots of fun, a bribe-or-two and of course the launch of our new site.

As with any inaugural event, we had a few hiccups and learned a lot along the way. We changed some of the awards on the fly with the help of our amazing judges. The winners were:

I’ll be working on getting the recipes up for the dishes that had recipes submitted in the coming days. Of course none of this would have been possible without all of you:

There will definitely be a 2nd Annual Masterbacon … that you can count on. We got some great feedback from folks on the event as well. If you have any ideas on how to improve it, by all means send it my way by leaving a comment on this post. One thing I know we’ll do in the future is have a “judges” table which is where a small bite-sized portion of the dish can be set aside for the judges so others can start eating right away.

Thanks again to everyone involved and we’ll see you all next time!

    Throughout this great pattern of things you actually receive an A+ with regard to hard work. Where you actually misplaced me was first on the particulars. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And it could not be much more true in this article. Having said that, permit me tell you exactly what did give good results. Your authoring is rather powerful and this is most likely why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, even though I can certainly see the leaps in reason you make, I am not sure of exactly how you seem to unite the points that produce your conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your position however trust in the foreseeable future you connect your facts better.

    URL Encoding

    URLs can only be sent over the Internet using the ASCII character-set.

    Since URLs often contain characters outside the ASCII set, the URL has to be converted into a valid ASCII format.

    URL encoding replaces unsafe ASCII characters with a “%” followed by two hexadecimal digits.

    URLs cannot contain spaces. URL encoding normally replaces a space with a + sign.
