hogs for the cause

This weekend the Hogs for the Cause was held in City Pork, a benefit for families that have been impacted by pediatric brain cancer. It was an incredible event, with great music and great pork. The mud made the event complete! If you want to see some more pictures and read more commentary, browse through the #hogsforthecause hashtag.

I got there early and upon entering, the Pig Sexy booth was ready to go, serving up steamed pork buns, which were delicious!!!

Image

The 555 Sauciers were ready with the best chocolate covered bacon!

Image

Mr. Pigglesworth’s booth had a hawker in pink pig costume, one of many booths with team members in costume!

Image

 

Pork was the star of the day, but I managed to find the LA 23 BBQ team selling brisket!

Image

Kevin Bacon’s Balls representing!

Image

And of course the all femmes team, Sweet Swine O’ Mine were representing as well!

Image

There were lots of teams from all over the south, and the Fox Bros. BBQ team from Atlanta had a whole hog come out the smoker right in the middle of the festivities Рgreat timing!

Image

RIght down the path, last years winners Stand Up and Snout were serving up the best smoked boudin ever!

Image

and across the path, Notorious P.I.G. was out in force

Image

Plus, the Hogs for the Cause had its own version of the St. Joseph’s Altar by Fat Buddies

Image

The music was wonderful, gave the crowds a way to start working off all that good pork

Treme Brass Band

Image

Hurray for the Riff Raff

Image

and the North Mississippi Allstars both on the NOLA Brewing stage were just a sampling of all the good music

Image

There were reminders so folks in attendance would remember the reason behind the festival – very nice to see children dancing in the Boss Hog VIP section in front of the stage.

Image

Image

Image

And of course, HUGE PROPS to all the BBQ teams, for braving the weather and the mud to feed the masses

Congratulations to all the competition winners! Until next year…
