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.”
