Get Your Meat Fight Tickets!

Update: Meat Fight is now SOLD OUT.

Earlier: Listen up folks. I'm giving you the chance to plan ahead for one of the coolest events that will happen in Dallas this fall - Meat Fight. On Sunday, November 4th, some of the best chefs in Dallas will convene at the Sons of Hermann Hall in Deep Ellum to try and smoke their way to a Meat Fight championship. Celebrity pitmasters from across the state will be there (along with me) to judge brisket, pulled pork, homemade sausage and a Wild Card meat. It's gonna be an awesome display of meat.

Details from the Meat Fight website: Admission includes samples of all competition meats, desserts, and beer courtesy of Deep Ellum Brewing Co., and while the Meat Fight rages upstairs, there will be a meat-related silent auction downstairs in the Old Bowling Alley. Think brisket paintings, brass-knuckles meat tenderizers, VIP access to local barbecuesterants-- you get the idea. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Tickets are on sale today, so get your tickets here before it's sold out.

Just because I know you'll be dying to show your support for Meat Fight between now and November 4th, go ahead and get your shirt here. Then wear it, take a photo, and upload it here. I can't wait to see you there.

My company website filter is blocking the Meat Fight website under the category "illegal drugs".

As it says,

Based on your corporate access policies, access to this web site ( ) has been blocked because the web category "Illegal Drugs" is not allowed.

How did they know that smoked meat is my drug?

Are there other events like this around DFW?

There are a few BBQ competitions around the area, but none on this scale with professionals doing the cooking and then allowing the public to eat it. Most are amatuer competitions where only the judges are able to eat.

There is Blues, Bandits and BBQ in Oak Cliff in late October. With a purchase of a wristband you get to try all the competition BBQ. There will also be bands and other food options. It is a fun time. Here is the info

Anyway to get one of those shirts?

Here's a link to purchase the many shirts of Meat Fight.


Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
