BaconFest Florida 2013: Todd Fisher, Host of United States of Bacon Says You Can't Overdose on Bacon

Is it possible to O.D. on bacon? Not according to the United States of Bacon host, chef Todd Fisher, whose job is to taste the pork product in all its magnificent incarnations, from one end of the country to the other. We're willing to bet most of this weekend's BaconFest attendees would agree with such a sentiment.

The festival, kicking off this weekend at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, will serve up all things bacon, from bacon milk shakes and bacon popcorn to Kevin Bacon himself. It's sold out, but for those who've already scored tickets to the pork-a-palooza, we spoke to Fisher for a little taste of what's to come.
