Last Night’s Beef: Brisket King Takes Tribeca [PHOTOS]


On Wednesday night, brisket lovers braved impending blizzard doom and packed the labyrinthine rooms of the old Lafayette Firehouse for the third annual Brisket King, a weeknight smoke sesh and competition to see which of the city’s barbecue slingers reigns supreme: Fletchers or Morgan’s, Dinosaur or Duck’s, Wandering ‘Cue, Kutschers, Joe & Mrs. Doe, Hill Country or Beast of Bourbon, among many, many more.

But with first, second, and third prizes in several categories, and local beef and booze at every turn, nary a soul escaped without a win. Check out the scene here, and then click over to our slide show for more.
