Some bacon lovers are complaining that an all-you-can-eat event in Frederick fell short of their expectations.
The Frederick News-Post (http://bit.ly/1o1eI7T ) reported Tuesday that the Maryland attorney general's office has fielded at least three consumer complaints stemming from last weekend's Beer Bacon Music.

Git a rope.
Its skinny ham. What the hell are those Canadians trying to pull?
That's just wrong.
What is in that-—it looks damned good?
I’m down with the smoked pork loin, but it’s not quite the same as belly. By a long shot.
$125 to eat bacon???? are they serious????
Reference Post #4.
That’s something that in a past life (like two or three months ago) I would have enjoyed - nay - reveled in.
I would have skipped the powered sugar though, opting instead for some maple syrup.
"The sign say all you can eat, not eat all you can! You here 4 hour!
You go home NOW!"
The classic Canadian Bacon Cosmo has:
Canadian Bacon - sliced thin and cooked on a griddle
Provolone - melted on the Canadian Bacon
Good PA sub roll
Topped with oil/vinegar
A bargain at twice the price.
Yes we were there and we were disappointed to say the least. Plenty of beer to try but I get more bacon on a burger from Burger King then I got from the festival. Plus we got there at noon it was from 12-5pm. We had tickets in advance and it took us 50 mins to wait in line to get through gate.
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Some bacon lovers are complaining that an all-you-can-eat event in Frederick fell short of their expectations.
The Frederick News-Post reported Tuesday that the Maryland attorney general’s office has fielded at least three consumer complaints stemming from last weekend’s Beer Bacon Music festival.
Some of the 5,000 people who paid up to $125 for tickets to the event say they were lucky to get a few strips of bacon from the all-you-can-eat bacon bar advertised by promoters.
Promoter Kevin MacFawn says he and the three other organizers had 2 tons of bacon on hand but their cooks couldn’t fry it up quickly enough to meet the demand.
MacFawn says at least 35 people have asked for refunds. He says the organizers haven’t decided how to respond.

I smell sham, not bacon.
Suckers-—— a $125 dollar ‘baconfest’? Or rather bacon fast. Could make a homemade BLT deluxe for about $5 each nicely fixed and be a happy camper plus save the gas $.
Aw,man—that sounds delicious.
I never heard of cosmos.Learn something every day.
Thanks for sharing that recipe with me.
By the way,here in MA we call them subs,not grinders.:-)
You should really include hot cherry peppers as well. I make the sandwiches for PSU tailgate every year and they’re a big hit. If you can get Amoroso rolls - that is what makes it. Same w/ cheese steaks which I also do every year.
Still doesn’t beat a bacon lover’s BLT at Waffle House.
I've lived here for 50 years and once worked in a local pizza and sub shop.
I always thought that a grinder (grindah) was toasted in the pizza oven and subs were not.
There is never enough bacon.
It’s a scientific fact.
Says here this bacon comes from New York City.
NEW YORK CITY!!!?!?!?!
I wouldn’t eat anything from a slaughterhouse in New York City. Too many ground up gangsters in the sausage.
