Big Apple Barbecue

Big Apple Barbecue

The 12th Annual Big Apple Barbecue is a must attend fête on June 7-8, 2014 from 11am-6pm daily. The barbecue block party is one of the country’s premiere festivals, celebrating all things BBQ. Get there early and hungry to enjoy award-winning barbecue, great live music, southern hospitality, and even a chance to meet the country’s best pitmasters.

Featured barbecue all-stars include:

Baker’s Ribs from Dallas Texas

Bakers Ribs is known for their sliced beef, smoked turkey and their out-of-this-world potato salad. These ribs (according to a very fond Yelper) “fall right off the bone”.

The Salt Lick BBQ from Driftwood Texas

Barbecue from Texas Hill Country has a dedicated following and The Salt Lick BBQ is one of the most famous from this barbecue genre. Fans of The Salt Lick claim it’s some of the best barbecue they’ve ever had in their life. (In fact, celebrities are known to helicopter in just to get another taste of it.)Best picks from The Salt Lick BBQ include their sausage, ribs and brisket. Oh, and be sure to ask for their secret spicy sauce if you think you can handle it (you’ve been warned).

Ubon’s Barbeque of Yazoo City Mississippi

Fans of Ubon’s rave about their BBQ chicken—it’s not to be missed.

Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q, Decatur, Alabama

There’s some good marketing in the sauces available for sale and their cookbook, but rest-assured—this is legitimate barbecue.  Just ask one of the thousands of loyal diners, who rave about Big Bob Gibson’s “‘que”. Be sure to request the White Sauce.

While you’re enjoying the best barbecue in the nation, you can also jam to bluegrass, soul rock and even punk on both days of the Big Apple Barbecue festival.
