"I love BBQ.  I grew up in Tennessee and my grandad was an amazing BBQ cook.  This reminds me of him."

Abby, Manhattan

"It's in the sauce.  Nah, it's the way you cook the meat.  Maybe the rub?  It's a mystery to me. Whatever it is it tastes amazing"

Charlie, Bayonne, NJ

"I'm a restaurant guy. This is the only place in NY where I can sample barbecue from over 30 different cooks of this caliber. I come every year.  Get here early!"

Cesar, Manhattan

"I love it!  Every year we wait for the spring and we buy our tickets online.  My husband likes the chili and I like the BBQ.  So we go to both.  Then we go on a diet!"

Valerie, Tottenville

This is a day to lick your fingers and get into the sauce.
