Bacon Camp was held earlier this year in Ann Arbor, Michigan. However, it was such a roaring success that it will most likely be repeated next year. It was primarily a chance for the bacon-minded to come together to swap bacon ideas and bacon recipes, but it had many other activities. These included poetry readings about bacon and how delicious it is. Noted R&B star, Andre Williams, sang a rendition of his 1956 song “Bacon Fat.” Attendees played Bacon Bingo. The game had, instead of numbers, words like “dry rub” and “rasher.”

Member of the Republic of Bacon Army Greg Martin creates a masterpiece!

On Monday this week we posted on our facebook page a truly inspiring recipe for Bacon Cheeseburger Soup. Greg Martin responded “I am so making this! Who is coming over for soup?” Honorary RoB Army Member Greg Martin took the post as a challenge, creating the dish for himself. After making it he posted “I made it.
