Today in the world of barbecue: The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party has been announced for June 12 and 13, and Fast Passes are on sale for $125 at the festival’s site. Might want to hold your horses, though — this year’s pitmasters have yet to be named. In the more immediate future, Grillin’ on the Bay, the competition barbecue event hosted by RUB, will take place (along with the Brooklyn Chili Smackdown) in Sheepshead Bay on March 27.
Elsewhere in the world of competitions, the gourmands at the BroBible report that Dinosaur Bar-B-Que easily took top honors at the inaugural New York City WingFest. Runners-up were Blondies Sports, Atomic Wings, Blue Smoke, and Croxley Ales. Finally, Feast is the latest, after Food Curated, to take a sneak peek at soon-to-open Fatty Cue and its “disco pig” mascot.
