Can you believe this year will be the 7th Meat Fight? It seems like just last week that organizer Alice Laussade was partying down in her backyard with a bunch of meat hogs. The event, which raises tons of money for National MS Society, has grown into an all-day event with all of the hippest chefs and food enthusiasts in town hanging around smoky grills. If you haven’t been, you’d better learn the rules: tickets go on sale Tuesday, October 4 and they go faster than a speeding bullet.

Here are some highlights from the fancy press release:

Meat Fight is a Texas barbecue competition featuring 16 of Dallas’ best chefs, with 100% of tickets sales benefitting the National MS Society and people living with MS in our area. Last year’s event raised over $150,000.

The four teams competing for barbecue glory include notable Dallas chefs like Omar Flores of Casa Rubia, Matt McCallister of Filament, Oliver Sitrin of Blind Butcher, and Tiffany Derry (who has just reported that she’s opening three new restaurants in Dallas, and was also featured on Bravo’s Top Chef).

Judges include culinary heavy-hitters like BBQ Editor Daniel Vaughn of Texas Monthly, Wayne Mueller from Louie Mueller Barbecue and Jill Bergus from Lockhart Smokehouse. And for the first time ever: we’ve got Pete Delkus on the judging panel. Forecast calls for a boatload of brisket, ribs and sausage, y’all. Roll up your sleeves.

And this year, the VIP section will be a separate competition being called The Side Show that includes 16 additional chefs. Notable Dallas chefs like Janice Provost from Parigi, Nathan Tate from Rapscallion, Katherine Clapner from Dude Sweet Chocolate and Jeffery Hobbs from Slow Bone BBQ will compete in feats of meats only available to the VIPs. Rumor has it someone might be building a bacon tower. Buckle up.

So, there you have it. Meat Fight will take place on Sunday, November 13th at the new Four Corners location in The Cedars in Dallas. Tickets are $100 for GA and $200 for VIP. Click on Tons of food, fun games, and celebrity judges.
