The Wandering Que’s Ari White Crowned 2016 Brisket King of NYC
Congratulations, Bill Durney, the New Brisket King of NYC!
On Monday, March 16th, we crowned a brand-new Brisket King of NYC! The bragging rights went to Pitmaster Billy Durney of Hometown BBQ (Red Hook, Brooklyn) with his traditional smoked brisket.
It was the fortification before the storm, as several hundred carnivores descended upon the Lafayette Firehouse for this year’s Brisket King of NYC on Wednesday, February 12th. Nearly two dozen chefs competed (see full list below) with the crown being claimed by Will Horowitz of Duck’s Eatery of the East Village!
