Paul and Sandy Jaouen played kind hosts to this years baconpalooza a week ago this past Saturday, timed to coincide with the bounty of fresh tomatoes coming from their garden. Lovers of BLT's gathered to try various brands of bacon and to drink a little wine, too. Bacon brands represented were the North Country Smokehouse apple smoked, from New Hampshire, Vande Rose Farms applewood smoked, from Iowa, both of which were deemed top of the class, a good head and shoulders of the next two, Surry Farms hickory smoked, from Virginia, which was deemed by most to be too salty and Trader Joe's applewood smoked, which many found too sweet.
There were a lot more wines present than I took notes on, or even tried because it was a fairly hot and humid day, but here's what I have. Maybe some others that attended can add their notes?
