BBQ and the City

Aaah, it seems that more and more BBQ restaurants have opened shop in NYC.

Here are some resources:
  • Recent NYT article on "Urban BBQ" and the festival coming up on Saturday/Sunday

  • Official Website for Big Apple BBQ - sponsors of the Third Annual Big Apple BarbeCUE Block Party from June 11 to June 12, 12 - 6 pm at Madison Square Park (23rd and Madison)

  • Some restaurants in the city:
    • Righteous Urban BBQ aka R.U.B. (23rd St b/w 7th and 8th Ave) [Menu Pages]
      http://www.rubbbq.net/ might be the official website, but its unclear, and in any case, no information is up yet.

      A blurb from New York Mag about R.U.B.:
      "A collaboration between Paul Kirk, who is, apparently, the Lance Armstrong of the competition-barbecue circuit—although, in person, he more closely resembles Wilford Brimley—and Andrew Fischel, a ’cue-crazed tech-world dropout from Roslyn."

    • Daisy May's BBQ USA

      Blurb from New York Mag:
      "decent pulled-pork sandwich and beef short ribs as big as cricket bats, but the real surprises are sides like mashed sweet potatoes folded with vanilla cream, and thick baked beans with burnt ends"
