I was just checking put the pigtrip.net site and some of the pitmasters have been announced for this years' Big Apple BBQ Block Party in NYC. The website is www.bigapplebbq.org.
It's exactly two months until the 6th annual Big Apple Barbecue Block Party rolls into Manhattan. On June 7 and 8, you can taste the array of barbecue profiles from Texas to Alabama to Mississippi to the Carolinas and back to New York City as national and local pitmasters converge for this 2-day event. The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party is also an excellent opportunity to meet some of the nation's legendary pitmasters, such as Chris Lilly, Mike Mills, Ed Mitchell and more.
So far, the line-up of New York BBQ restaurants includes:
Blue Smoke (Kenny Callaghan)
Dinosaur Bar-B-Que (John Stage)
Hill Country (Marc Glosserman)
Rack & Soul (John Wheeler)
The line-up of nationally-known restaurants/pitmasters includes:
17th Street Bar & Grill (Illinois, Mike Mills)
Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q (Alabama, Chris Lilly)
Black Jack BBQ (S. Carolina, Jimmy Hagood )
Mitchell's BBQ (N. Carolina, Ed Mitchell)
Salt Lick BBQ (Texas, Michael Rodriguez)
Ubon's (Mississippi, Garry Roark)
