West Salem hosts Bringing Home the Bacon BBQ competition

WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT)- The Bringing Home the Bacon barbecue competition in West Salem pits adults and children as young as 7 against each other to see who the real grill masters are.

A total of 87 teams of people from Wisconsin and surrounding states are competing for the prize money.

All of the meat used in the competition is from local farmers and vendors.

“We think of ourselves as a BBQ family. So this is just a place where we can have fun, enjoy our companies,” said competition organizer Laurie Tweten.

The competition doubles as a fundraiser for the West Salem Fire Department.

The competition goes on all weekend at the Neshonoc Lakeside Camp and Resort.
