Following up on our report the other day about the upcoming Sacramento Burger Battle -- a heated competition, yes, but a charity fundraiser, too -- we've found a collection of promotional photos of the 15 competing chefs and their burgers. We're told that the actual burger recipes for the competition remain top-secret in several cases, so these giant, juicy burgers in these very impressive photos may be decoys or the real McCoy. Check out the photos by clicking here. The burgers look great. And several of the chefs certainly wore their "game faces" for their photo.

Congratulations ahead of time to the chefs for getting involved with a first-time event that promises to be the start of a great new food tradition for the Sacramento area, as well as a meaningful fundraiser for the Chrohn's & Colitis Foundation of America. Rodney Blackwell, author of the blog Burger Junkies, is the man who organized the Sacramento Burger Battle. The event is this Tuesday at Raley Field from 7-10 p.m. (VIP ticketholders get in at 6 p.m.). Tickets are $55 per person, which includes sample sizes of the competing burgers, beer, wine and cider, as well as live music. For more information or to buy tickets, click here.
