Our Favorite Pork Posts, Just in Time for Hogs for the Cause

by Sydney Blanchard

At Bite and Booze, it's safe to say we love pork in all its iterations, whether it's a juicy smoked Boston Butt or a crispy cut of bacon.
 Our pork passion is one of the main reasons you'll find us out at Hogs for the Cause each year. Hogs for the Cause, a New Orleans Barbecue Competition, started in 2009 as a way to raise money for a child with incurable pediatric brain cancer. Today, the event has grown into a huge barbecue competition and music and food festival. All the money raised goes directly to families with kids fighting brain cancer.

If you feel so inclined, consider donating to our Hogs for the Cause team. Teams are ranked not only by their barbecue chops but also by their ability to raise money for the cause, so please help us out!

In the meantime, take a scroll down memory lane and check out some of our favorite pork pics to date.
