Congratulations to Main Street Meat Company in Roscoe and their hickory smoked bacon for receiving the Grand Champion award for best bacon at the 2015 Illinois State Fair. I'm drooling just hearing about it...

Additional congratulations go out to AJ's Lena Maid Meats of Lena, Illinois who won the Grand Champion award for processed beef.

Thank goodness we now know where to go to get the best meat in the Stateline to make this year's Labor Day cookout one for the record books. I'm sure they will sell out quick, so maybe we should all think about making a pre-order now!

Now we are off to beg the Main Street Meat Company to bring some of there award winning bacon to the Brews & BBQ event on Saturday, September 5 at Settlers Park in Rockton.
