best block party that smells like austin (2008)

FIRST ANNUAL BIG APPLE BBQ BLOCK PARTY

Woe to the unsuspecting vegetarian who wandered down East 27th Street during the FIRST ANNUAL BIG APPLE BBQ BLOCK PARTY in early summer only to be confronted with row after row of sienna-hued whole hogs. Sponsored by BBQ joint Blue Smoke, this two-day pig-out featured true Southern 'Q from institutions like Kreuz Market in Lock-hart, Texas, and Mitchell's in Wilson, North Carolina, allowing city folk to casually drop the phrase "from the roota to the toota" to people who actually know what it means.
