The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party in Photos

Categories: Last Night

Crowds and lines under a cloud of barbecue smoke.
Pitmasters from all over the country descended on Madison Square Park this weekend for the city's annual celebration of smoked meats. The 11th annual Big Apple Barbecue Block Party again netted massive crowds for two days of pulled pork, beef brisket, and rack of ribs, plus an array of cooking demonstrations and live music.

Didn't feel like fighting the lines? Understandable, because they were long. Here's a small photographic taste of what you missed.

Baby back ribs from Pappy's Smokehouse in St. Louis, Missouri.
