Thank You to Our Cook-Off Sponsors

Wow! What a tremendous event! We are so very grateful to the many sponsors who lend financial support to help us produce our annual cook-off. The Praise the Lard Murphysboro Barbecue Cook-off is a not-for-profit event, and the monies donated help us produce the event, providing funds for prize money, the expenses related to sanctioning the cook-off, music, porta-potties, security, food for the public events, donations for the groups who help us, etc. An event of this magnitude has many moving parts, as you might imagine. We couldn’t do it without the help and support of so many. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
