While Baconfest Chicago proper has been rescheduled for April, its Pro Bacon Cookoff on October 24 at the Publican is still on—and tickets go on sale at noon today.

The cheftestants competing for the Golden Rasher for the Best Use of Bacon by a Culinary Professional have been finalized. Check them out:

The 60 spectators will get a tasting portion of each competitor's dish, ten two-ounce beer tastings selected by Master of Ceremonies Paul Kahan, and a "bacon gift bag."
