Big Apple BBQ June 13-14 2009

Big Apple BBQ June 13-14 2009

I do recommend the Fast Pass – but in a group sense. Last year my friend and her boyfriend used it the first day, then me and two other people used it the next day. It worked out well, with a group.

The fast pass allows you to get on lines which are in the rear of the stands. This allows you to bypass the commonfolk waiting for bbq in the streets. Still, there is a wait, but at least 2x as fast and probably more times.

Barbecue $8/plate
Desserts $4
Beverages $2-$6

I don’t plan on going this year. It was good, but I am happy I did it just once. The lines are long, and I had a hard time concentrating on the food – plus, the stands aren’t proper cooking staging areas, so I will just take in the names of the respected pitmasters for now:
