Big Apple Barbecue Returns on June 8 and 9
This time next month will mark the return of one of the city's most joyous times of the year - the Big Apple Barbecue. In addition to attracting over 140,000 attendees, the Union Square Events production draws in serious talent, with a lineup that includes 17 pit masters from 10 different states. The 11th annual event will see Blue Smoke's Kenny Callaghan joined by Raleigh's Ed Mitchell, The Salt Lick's Scott Roberts and Pappy Smokehouse's Mike Emerson, and many more. Admission is always free, but a limited number of $125 FastPass tickets (which allows for express line access and an $100 food credit) are still available for Sunday, June 9. And for those of you who'd like to try recreating the magic at home, there will be also be classes and seminars offered onsite at a pop-up Weber Grilling School.
