Bacon Off Orlando: Father's Day Fun

You may have missed the best Father's Day event in Central Florida - so get on the ball and secure your plans for next year!!! 

Bacon Off Orlando pitted two of Orlando's favorite food trucks neck-to-neck in a bacon cook off.  Think Top Chef Style with the Big Wheel Truck facing the C&S Brisket Bus.

Each truck made four different bacon items:

  • Best Original Bacon
  • Best Novelty Bacon
  • Best Bacon Side
  • Best Bacon Product

So basically - you go to each truck and get the sample platter - then vote for your favorite while your in bacon coma.

First up - the Big Wheel Truck. We had some awesome bacon, a short-rib bacon, bacon dip and bacon polenta.

I've learned that it's very hard for me to judge bacon because it's all just so good.  I was surprised by how much I like the polenta.  And the bacon dip.  It could have come with a few more crackers.  But I loved it so much I spent the afternoon looking for different things I could dip into it.  The original bacon was the perfect consistency for me - not too hard, not to soft - just melts in your mouth.

Then it was time to try the Brisket Bus.

So we had original bacon - but it was infused with root beer.

Then a buffalo wing, also bacon sauced.   A bacon corn bread and bacon jelly bruschetta.

My youngest loved the buffalo wing so much he demanded more - but that wasn't possible.

The corn bread was delicious - I was really impressed also by the bruschetta.

It's simply amazing what you can do with bacon!!!

Not only was there bacon - but also beer, music and an all-you-can-eat buffet!  I have to mention I also had some of the best brownies of my life. The Batter Bowl truck was selling additional items, including a salted caramel bacon infused brownie.  Yes, it was as amazing as it sounds.

It was a perfect Father's Day event for the whole family! Next time - we need to wear some good bacon-related clothing to really blend in!!
