Pig Wars – Tonight at City Market in Raleigh

City Market, Raleigh, NC

PIG WARS/CITY MARKET, RALEIGH, NC
I have mail!  Yes, indeed … and it’s piling up after an article Tuesday in the N&O about the upcoming Pig Wars (yep, it’s tonight) at City Market in Raleigh where I’m a guest judge.  Proceeds benefit Easter Seals, so it’s a great cause that also tastes good.

I hope they know that I’m not a “Chapel Hill restaurateur” as I’m described.  I know Chapel Hill restaurants. I love Chapel Hill restaurants. I’ve over-enjoyed myself in many of them, but I don’t now or ever want my own.

So here’s what’s happening tonight:  Historic City Market and Big Ed’s host City Market Pig Wars on Fri., Dec. 2 in downtown Raleigh.  Five professional and non-professional teams will face off in this new First Friday event, which has been designed to attract lovers of great barbecue, live music and a great charitable cause –  Easter Seals UCP.  At 5:30 p.m., official judging by local celebrity and retired WRAL-TV5 news anchor Charlie Gaddy and 1360WCHL SideDish host/Simmer2Sizzle blogger Deborah P. Miller will take place.

After the winner is announced, spectators will have the opportunity to taste the barbecue prepared by all five cook-off teams by purchasing barbecue sandwiches and pints of barbecue cooked up for the event. Live music provided by The Craig Thompson Duo.  

More later!
