Rachel!). We arrived early to scoop out the scene and get some pictures before the organized chaos reigned. This time we got to witness Taryn Winter Brill doing interviews with the contestants, and the hysterical Matt Timms. But you don't care about that, you just want to hear about the piggies. Well, with so many photos and so much to cover, I'm running through the highlights and winners!
First, the real meal types:
Nick Suarez (the unofficial takedown king) brought bacon sloppy joes.
Electric bacon was home cured, quite a feat.
#28 F.U.B.J. involved many home made things
and a deep-fryer!
One of Dewey's favorites was the bacon and pork shoulder tamales.
Then there were the desserts, many, many bacon desserts:
Kumquat's Bacon Cupcakes
Brownie with fresh bacon whip cream
Caramel bacon cookies
Bacon ice cream
Bacon-avocado ice cream
and bacon turtles!
All in all, a very commendable showing by all participants. Nothing blatantly didn't work, some combinations just went together better than others. They really set the bar high for the next bacon takedown. But there has to be winners:

More takedowns will be announced soon, including a vegetarian one (for you, Bez) and the summer Chili Takedown appears to be on!! If you want to stay in the loop for the next Takedown, I highly suggest checking out Chili-Takedown.com regularly or following Matt's Twitter.
