New York City is the culinary capital of the world. On any given street corner you can have your choice of Thai, Italian, Mexican, Dominican, Chinese or Greek food. But there's one flavor NYC is slacking off on and that's barbeque.
A number of restaurants in the city have attempted to recreate this plate of Americana, but no one has quite yet mastered the beauty that comes with a perfectly smoked, charred and smothered piece of meat. So NY had to improvise, and thus the Big Apple BBQ Block Party was born.
On June 9 & 10 from 11:00am-6:00pm pit masters from across the United States will be imported to Madison Square Park offering Big Apple inhabitants a taste of Southern hospitalit as beer and brisket overflow into a veritable circus of sirloin.
