New York Taste…of Mind

Took a little time off to get my head right. I thought about whats next for PFU and for me in general. Along my journey, I’ve been faced with haters and folks who try to lay obstacles on my path to greatness. I almost let them get under my skin but I realized how far PFU has grown and the potential. So I decided to celebrate my greatness by attending New York Magazine Taste event. I’ve been going to this event for a very long time and it keeps getting better every year. Some of NYC’s best chef  threw down.

– Pinky Finger Up

Brisket Throwdown!

There is a new king of brisket here in NY. The Pinky Finger Up team had the pleasure of joining Jimmy (Carbone) and the Food Karma Projects crew. Meatlovers flocked to Irondale in Brooklyn for hours of libations and some of the best brisket. Fifteen fierce competitors went head to head with the leanest and fattest samples of brisket. Some of the competitors represented some of the top bbq houses and deli in the city, while one came all the way from Detroit. When the smoke cleared there was only room for one winner: Hometwon Bar-B-Que and hands down my favorite of the night. Juicy and tender perfection.

Hey Billy, we are coming soon with an empty stomach!
