Big Apple BBQ Block Party - New York, NY

Our annual trip to the Big Apple BBQ Block Party was a little different this year...instead of seeing how many different pitmasters' foods we could cram in over a two-day stretch, we mostly hung around our client Pat Martin's rig, helping eat whole hog BBQ for the better part of the weekend.

We did manage to participate in one of our favorite Big Apple BBQ activities - spending ample amounts of time in the Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon area with Julian and Preston Van Winkle, and listening to The Crooners. The band made Julian an honorary member this year, and commemorated the occasion by giving him his own cowbell, which he made good use of on several occasions.
