LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week’s I Beat Pete is I Eat Pete as Pete tried to eat one of his favorite foods, bacon. He tried to eat as many slices as he could of Wright Brand extra thick bacon, where one extra thick slice is like three thin slices of bacon!

This weekend it’s Baconfest with over 600 pounds of bacon. It takes place Saturday starting at 8 a.m. at the Texas Air Museum at the Slaton Airport. It will take place rain or shine.

Each vendor will get 30 pounds of bacon to make their menu item. Among the items at Baconfest: Bacon BLT , Bacon Egg and Cheese Burritos , Brown Sugar and Honey Bacon stick , Green Chili Bacon Cheese Burgers and Blue Cheese Bacon Burgers.

Portions of the money raised will benefit several charities. As a lover of bacon, Pete once ate 47 slices of thin bacon in one sitting. How many extra thick slices that were 80 calories each could he eat?

Watch the challenge and get out to Baconfest Saturday in Slaton. If you have a challenge, email
