The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party in Photos


Pitmasters from all over the country descended on Madison Square Park this weekend for the city’s annual celebration of smoked meats.

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