Big Apple Barbecue Block Party

Home > New York > Food and Wine | Community Events
Event:
Meat lovers, unite!

On June 12 and 13, the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party returns to Madison Square Park.

For the past eight years, the finger-licking festival has been pairing the country's top pitmasters of authentic Southern cuisine with live music and cooking demonstrations at the outdoors space, attracting thousands of barbecue enthusiasts each year.

For some readers, that might scream lines, and while those can't be avoided, the meat - from ribs to pulled pork - is well worth the wait (just like another regular feature at the park).

Pitmasters will travel near and far for the event, including local New York favorites such as Ken Callaghan of Blue Smoke and Charles Grund, Jr. of Beef Brisket, as well as barbecuers from Charleston, South Carolina, to Dallas, Texas.

It's the best the country has to offer, right at your fingertips. So dig in.
