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!
