Big Apple BBQ 2010 Review

Eating Everywhere, a place that I occasionally will write a restaurant review for, did a quick review on the Big Apple BBQ. Having attended this splendid event, I can assure you that, if you’re in the NYC next year when this event roles around, you undoubtedly should not miss it! Incredible food, beer, and fun!


New York City is not often known for barbeque. That’s not to say we don’t have a number of fine establishments specializing in the slow process of smoking beef, pork, and chicken until they’re fall-off-the-bone tender. There are some good ones, and more opening all the time.

Novice Smoker Moving On In at BDR

BDR readers will be happy to hear that as of Sunday night (30-May-2010), BDR will be the home to Novice Smoker articles. The Novice Smoker was a blog that centered around my adventures in smoking and, to a lesser extent, grilling. I’ve decided that the two blogs should be one – more so because Novice Smoker was getting enough love than any other reason. This merge is exciting in that it will allow BDR readers to enjoy the typical info we post here in addition to all the BBQ-related goodies that have been part of the Novice Smoker heritage.

Remember to update your links so they point to BDR –
