Tickets are on sale for the event, which will be hosted on the Williamsburg waterfront on April 15th. Sure, Brooklyn BBQ may be a funny meme, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying this delicious event.
Brisket King of NYC returns for its seventh year, moving to Williamsburg. The lengthy list of competition participants includes NYC homegrown barbecue joints like Hill Country, Salt and Bone BBQ, Butcher Bar, and Brooklyn’s Dinosaur BBQ outpost. Chefs from Toronto and England will also be present, and the event is being judged by former Food and Wine magazine editor Dana Cowin, cookbook author Peter Kaminsky, and chef Grayson Schmitz, among others. Brisket King goes down on April 25, and general admission tickets are $75 in advance through April 15 and then $85 up until the day before the event.
