The BBQ Blog chronicles our adventures in search of the perfect all-natural BBQ.
Not sure why I never found this site before, but check out Amazing Ribs created by Craig Goldwyn. It a very thorough site mostly on the topic of Ribs. I really like the 12 Definitions of BBQ. I admit I fall into the purist category, but as long as people are cooking outside, it's all good.
So if you are gonna brave the crowds get to Madison Park early and get your FastPass. Here is a nice email that I reveived from the event organizers:
Thank you for your interest in the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party. A
limited number of Amex fast passes will be available for purchase at
12:00 Noon on Saturday at the fast pass sales tent in the park. See you

So if I were you, I would get there damn early.
Ready to get crushed in search of BBQ? - In a now yearly event, Manhattan allows some of the best BBQ producers around the country to sell Que in Madison Square Park. It is quite crowded so get there early. Get more info here.
My only wish is that the organizers made a little bit more effort to get local (by local I mean New York state at least) BBQers involved.
Oh well...there is always next year....
