Big Apple Barbecue Block Party 2005, Part 1

POST #    1756

Much like last year, the Big Apple BBQ Block Party was an insane eating extravaganza. So much food, so much over eating, so many people. All very bad on the waistline, but it seemed like such a good idea at the time. I believe I had one of each barbecue item at the event except for the snoot and anything from Blue Smoke.

So, a list of what I had:
- Brisket with sausage and beans from Southside Market & BBQ in Elgin, TX
- St. Louis spareribs with coleslaw from Whole Hog Cafe in Little Rock, AR
- Whole pork shoulder with beans from Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q in Decatur, AL
- Baby back ribs with beans from 17th St Bar & Grill in Murphysboro, IL
- Whole hog with coleslaw from Mitchell's BBQ in Wilson, NC
- Beef brisket, sausage and coleslaw from The Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood, TX
- Pork shoulder with coleslaw from Ubon's in Yazoo, MS
- Pork shoulder with beans from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in New York

Insane, I say! INSANE!!!! More later. Damn, I could go for some more today...

What'd you think of Salt Lick? I love that place. It's something like $14 for all you can eat brisket, sausage, and ribs, with sides. Plus, it's BYOB (no joke!)

Is that guy in the cowboy hat holding Anakin Skywalker?

"What of Padme?"

Little Rock, AR not AK. AK = Alaska.
