Minnesota State Fair regular Charlie Torgerson, who owns five franchises of Famous Dave’s BBQ, got famous for his chocolate-covered bacon, which he followed up with peach-glazed pigs’ cheeks. This year, Torgerson is frying up pigs’ ears, cut to look like curly fries, with a chipotle glaze. “He’s done everything but the squeal,” fair official Dennis Larson, who oversees new food, told the local press. “He’s running out of organs.”

Where: St. Paul, MN
When: Fair opens late August.
