Yesterday had to be one of the most fun events I’ve ever been involved with. I’m sure this had a lot to do with the fact that it was about one of my favorite things (bacon) but I think the key to it all was the amazing people that turned out.

Zivio had the run of the place

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 a 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!

    I think a judges table, with an emphasis on BITE SIZED, would be a great addition. Would have been much easier for us and happy goodness for the bacon hungry masses.

    Wow! The party seems like heart-clogging. Did you have prizes to hand out, or was it all about the bragging rights?
