Every year, more teams (90 at last count) compete in the Ben Sarrat, Jr. Cook Off Presented by
Children’s Hospital of New Orleans for the High on the Hog Grand Champion title. The barbecue
competition is fierce, and the winners claim bragging rights not only in barbecue mastery, but more
importantly, fundraising prowess. Teams are a motley mix of some of the region’s best chefs,
professional barbecue teams from around the country, and backyard barbecue fanatics, and all
teams sell food to the public to raise money for the Cause. Winners are declared in seven
categories: Whole Hog, Ribs, Pork Butt/Shoulder, Porkpourri, Sauce, Fan Favorite, and Fundraising
Donations to Hogs for the Cause (including direct donations and donations to registered teams) are tax deductible to the full extent as allowed by the IRS.
