Meat Fight 2015

What is Meat Fight? It is a Texas barbecue competition benefiting the National MS Society. The sixth annual event featured four teams of Dallas' best chefs that competed for barbecue glory. The judges were compiled of an all-star BBQ cast:
Daniel Vaughn - Texas Monthly BBQ editor
Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue
Jack Perkins of Slow Bone
Mike Babb of Babb Bros BBQ & Blues
Jill Bergus of Lockhart Smokehouse
Wayne Mueller of Louie Mueller Barbecue
Kerry Bexley of Snow's BBQ
Stephen Joseph of Riverport Bar-B-Q
Nick Pencis of Stanley's Famous Pit Bar-B-Que
Brian C. Luscher of Luscher's Red Hots

This was my first year to attend the event. It has been a while since we have gone to the DFW area. Almost two years! Before I headed to the event, I ate at Heim Barbecue in Fort Worth. I have the whole eating barbecue before a BBQ event down. The competition was held at the Green Warehouse. A similar setup to the fair, the Meat Midway lets you play games and win prizes. There was a lot of food, sweets, and drinks to be had. Near the end of the contest, some cool ass stuff was auctioned off. A bike, dinner packages, BBQ tour, weekend getaway, smoker, and more...

What a great event! Fun times and an awesome cause. Win-Win. It was just a big ole party. It was super seeing and talking to familiar faces and "meating" new ones. It was a little crowded in the beginning, but it thinned out throughout the afternoon. The competition ended up raising $150,000 to help fight multiple sclerosis! Take that MS. The Fearsome Fourcemeat won the team competition in case you were wondering. After last weekend and this, I might be eating nothing but salads up until Thanksgiving.

Merry Meatmas to all and to all a goodnight

Until next time, happy smoking..
