For $75, you get three hours of all you can eat meat and all you can drink craft beer. It's a pretty good deal.
There's only one thing better than a sublime, slow-cooked brisket and that's 20 of them.
Meat lovers are in for a treat on Wednesday, when some of the city's best brisket chefs vie for the coveted title of "Brisket King of NYC."
And the best part is the public is invited to taste them all.
"Some guys get really competitive about their brisket cooking," says Jimmy Carbone, owner of Jimmy's No. 43 in the East Village and co-founder of Brisket King. "There are some really creative entrees. It's a lot more than just BBQ."
Leading contenders include Brian Perrone of Slows BBQ in Detroit and local favorites like Fletcher's Brooklyn BBQ and Kutsher's Tribeca.
Pay one price $75 and then spend the next three hours chowing down on unlimited meat and drinking bottomless glasses of craft beer and vodka.
Sounds like a deal.
Brisket King contest at The Firehouse, 87 Lafayette St. between White and Walker Sts., Feb. 12, 6 p.m. For tickets, visit www.eventbrite.com.
Brisket is one cut I haven’t been able to master. But then I can buy steak for the same price so my motivation is fairly low.
That’s a corned beef.
Right at lunchtime. You fiend!
I think it is called a “corned beef brisket”. But not the kind of brisket that would draw crowds of carnivores.
Grandma lived in Sheepshead Bay when she was alive. She made a yummy brisket.
Isn’t brisket and NY an oxymoron?
