NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — It’s time to eat some barbecue, Louisiana! Hogs for the Cause is Friday and Saturday.

With more than 95 teams of pitmasters and barbeque gurus, the 2023 competition is slated to be the biggest challenge in Hog history! WGNO’s Wild Bill Wood speaks with one team ahead of the competition, The Hogfather.

Come out and enjoy some bacon, burnt ends, and just plain good barbeque — all for a good cause! In the last 15 years, more than $5 million has been raised for kids with pediatric brain cancer.
