Meat Fight 2017: Dallas Barbecue Competition for MS Support Grows

By  | 

Meat Fight 2017 tickets have officially gone on sale, and you can get in on the action at the link provided here. Being held on Sunday, November 12, this charity event will be at the Longhorn Ballroom in Dallas, and although it grows larger each year, they’ll only accommodate 1,500 lucky ticket holders this go-round.

This annual event managed to raise $175,000 in 2016, which it donated to support people with Multiple Sclerosis, and this was garnered from all proceeds, including ticket sales, merchandise, and auction items. In the same vein, all those who work the event, including Alice Lassaude, Meat Fight CEO, do so on a volunteer basis. This year is anticipated to be bigger and better, and by simple math, hopefully, raise even more valued donations to the cause.

At its core, Meat Fight is an annual barbecue competition, feeding all those in attendance, only in this instance, none of its competitors are considered pitmasters. The real pitmasters are actually the judges, while the barbecue teams consist of chefs from the Dallas area and a complement of people they put together themselves. This year’s event will feature 20 chefs competing across five teams, and attendees of the event will have the chance to eat a selection of every competition meat which is submitted for judging. This year, they’ll also host a Sweet Fight category for dessert entries.
