Ramblings: Snapple Big Apple BBQ

2009 Snapple Big Apple BBQ Block Party



This weekend New York City will welcome pitmasters from across the country as the city that never sleeps hosts the Snapple Big Apple BBQ Block Party. The only local event that I can cover for the Home of BBQ, this event has premier artisans representing every style of BBQ.


Luminaries such as Mike Mills, Chris Lilly and Ray ‘Dr. BBQ’ Lampe will be brushing shoulders with hundreds of thousands of crazy New Yorkers as Madison Square Park becomes BBQ central. Smokers and rigs will be lining two of the four sides of the park as hungry locals clamor for authentic ‘Q.


In addition to the great food, there will be continuous live music in the park and seminars, book signings and demonstrations going on in the tents on a side street. As always, admission is free for the event, the seminars and the music. The BBQ is $8.00 a plate.


As we did last year, the Home of BBQ will be present to take in the event. We hope to get there a bit early and get a behind the scenes look at the event, the pitmasters and the experience as a whole.


Check back next Wednesday for the first recap.
