There’s nothing like a clip of Adam Perry Lang spit-roasting Elmo (with an assist from 50 Cent!) to get you in the mood for a little barbecue this weekend. Lang won’t be appearing at the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party tomorrow (the Daisy May’s chef is making the rounds plugging his new cookbook on ESPN.com and such), but the Feedbag tells you who to visit, and there’s also our user’s guide from last year. Helping out at Hill Country’s pit will be Rob “Not a Vegan” Egan, the winner of their rib-eating contest, footage of which is also up on the ’bag.
Rest assured, the BABBP isn’t the only thing doing in the world of barbecue this weekend — as previously mentioned, the NYC Food Film Festival launches tomorrow with a party where RUB (also missing from the BABBP) will serve up mutton in honor of Mutton: The Movie. If you’re a vegetarian, we’ll make up for that Elmo video by mentioning there’s also a mushroom event on Sunday (mushroom cocktails!), and the curry takedown happens this weekend, too.
