Thousands Got Their Fill On Meat At 15th Annual BBQ
New Yorkers went hog wild at an event over the weekend that showcases the country’s best barbecue.
Several thousand people attended the Big Apple Barbecue presented by Kingsford, where they feasted on brisket, smoked sausage, pulled pork sandwiches – and of course, lots of ribs.
Pitmasters from around the country served their signature dishes for diners. The Illinois-based 17th St. BBQ served baby back ribs and tangy pit beans, while the Baker’s Ribs of Dallas doled out St. Louis-style ribs with jalapeno cole slaw.
Eastern North Carolina’s Skylight Inn served whole hog sandwich topped with sweet slaw, and founder Sam Jones told BOSSIP that you don’t need to be in the country to recreate his slow-cooked pig recipe.
“Get a Weber smoker,” Jones said. “That’s something you can do on your patio or back deck. You can buy an eight to 10 pound pork butt and cook it on the Weber over charcoal. It’ll take you about eight to ten hours to do it right. That’s the least inexpensive that you can buy, so if you don’t like the commitment of making barbecue, you can walk away.”
Afro beat band Antibalas provided the tunes Saturday afternoon, performing a drum and bass-heavy rendition of Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me.”
