Update: The Daniel Vaughn/Aaron Franklin connection paid off as Meat Fight is SOLD OUT.


Multiple Schlerosis has a new and formidable foe. Alice Laussade, The Dallas Observer’s “Cheap Bastard” food columnist, is organizing a barbecue battle featuring area pit bosses who will be competing against one another with proceeds going to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The competition has been dubbed Meat Fight.

Daniel Vaughn, the “BBQ Snob”

Place: Sons of Hermann Hall in Deep Ellum

Date: Sunday, Nov. 4 2012

Time: 2-6 pm

Cost: $50

We reckon that if Aaron Franklin had been competing instead of judging they could have just called the whole thing off and given him the championship trophy; so it’s probably for the best he’s sitting this one out.

The other pit bosses would’ve just ran shrieking in terror as soon as they saw Franklin wheeling into the parking lot with his rig.

Decorum is always important at this sort of affair.
