Dan Delaney Talks Brisket


Dan Delaney carves the meat at BrisketTown.

Now fully opened on the stretch of Bedford Avenue just north of the Williamsburg Bridge, and dishing out luscious, long-smoked brisket, BrisketTown evolved out of a series of 31 pop-up barbecue events called BrisketLab that happened over the summer. The man behind the meat is Daniel Delaney, and watching him at work, there’s no doubt of his passion for Texas-style BBQ. But how did it arise? As recently as a year ago, Delaney was a video producer who created a web-TV show called VendrTV. On one of the episodes posted last summer, he enthusiastically discusses beef brisket in a harbinger of great things to come.
