The Masters of ’Cue, in All Their Glory

The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party is rooted in a deep appreciation for the tradition, culture, and low-and-slow mantra of real-pit barbecue. The 2018 festival features a star-studded roster of Chefs and Pitmasters; we’re talking the absolute best-of-the-best from around the country. Watch as the entire Flatiron neighborhood is transformed virtually overnight into a barbecue-lover’s paradise, with the biggest names in the game setting up shop on Madison Avenue and smoking up that skyline.

The 2018 Culinary Lineup drops in February. Until then, take a peak at the smoking hot talent from the 15th Anniversary celebration, June 2017.
