Meat Fight (n): a Texas barbecue competition benefitting the National MS Society.


In 2010, we started Meat Fight with a few friends in our backyard.



In 2012, we brought the meats to the masses for the first time. Dallas chefs competed for barbecue glory, and they were judged by the best barbecue minds in best barbecue state. We ate meat, we drank whiskey, and we raised $20,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

In 2013, we demolished that number and raised $50,000. We even had Nick Offerman as a special guest.

And this year, with the help of our sponsors and your generous donations, we’ll raise even more. Here’s to meat, beers, and finding a cure for MS.

THE CAUSE
Meat Fight benefits the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Our mission is to make the lives of those living with MS brighter, and ultimately, to find a cure for MS.

Meat FIght donates 100% of base ticket price (before service fees) directly to the National MS Society.

This year, we are working closely with members of the NMSS to create original Meat Fight programs that will directly benefit those living with MS.
