Chicago's Baconfest brings 150 chefs and more than 8,000 pounds of this pork product together for 48 hours of pure indulgence. Roughly 4,500 bacon enthusiasts flock to the Windy City from all over the country. These devotees know the tasty, cured meat is much more than a breakfast side dish. With creations like bacon fat cheddar biscuits, bacon corn dogs, and even bacon cheesecake, this is one event you don't want to miss.
