Big Apple BBQ Block Party

If you live in New York City, don’t miss the Big Apple BBQ Block Party this weekend in Madison Square Park!

I went over for lunch yesterday and stuffed myself senseless. First, I enjoyed Blue Smoke’s St. Louis Ribs wit Dill Pickles.

Then, some Pulled Pork Shoulder with Coleslaw from Ubon’s in Yazoo, MS.

The ribs were a tasty appetizer, but the pulled pork won my top prize. Full of crispy bits, the meat was tender and so flavorful that I didn’t need the extra sauce. The coleslaw was light and peppery; perfect on the sandwich or on the side.

If you’re reading this on Sunday, there’s still time to dash on over and pick yourself up some ‘cue. They’re not exactly giving it away (each plate is $7), but the weather is perfect, the lines move pretty quickly, and the portions at Ubon’s are pretty huge.

I'm glad you liked the pulled pork from Ubon's-- that and the southside market sausage have been my favorites. Yum....The weather was perfect, too.

I went to the 'q, too! But the line took forever and it was so windy and sort of cold. My friends were really hungry and sort of cranky in that low-blood-sugar kind of way. We ended up in the first line we came to for pulled pork and waited for at least 30 minutes. But it was SO worth it! We asked for extra sauce and our sandwiches were on potato rolls. The pork was tender and moist. The best part is that the place we ended up getting our lunch from, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, is local. If you consider West 131st Street local anyway!
