Now in its 16th year, the Big Apple Barbecue Block party is back again to fill New York with the sights – and smells – of America’s favorite cookout. Featuring some of the world’s most badass pitmasters, the event is one of the country’s largest barbecue fests. And yes, that’s including Texas.

Founded by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, the two-day foodie free-for-all will take place in Madison Square Park from 11 am – 6 pm. No ticket is needed to attend the public event, but a BBQ plate will cost you around $12.
