And that's just the tip of the ribs, because the winners will be personally escorted around the event by none other than Serious Eats overlord (and serious 'cue lover) Ed Levine. Ed will introduce you to some of the incredibly talented pit masters and yarn-spinners gathering in New York City's Madison Square Park. You'll chew the fat with legendary 'cue men Mike Mills of the 17th Street Bar and Grill, Chris Mills and Don McLemore of Big Bob Gibson's, and North Carolina pit master Ed Mitchell.
And that's not all. Our lucky winners will also receive what Serious Eats considers the essential 'Cue Lover's Library:
- Peace, Love and Barbecue by Mike Mills and Amy Mills Tunncliffe
- Smokestack Lightning by Lolis Eric Elie and Frank Stewart
- Legends of Texas Barbecue by Robb Walsh
But, wait! There's more! Our winners will receive all kinds of barbecue stuff, including sauces, rubs, and anything else Serious Eats deems worthy that we can get our hands on.
To enter to win this barbecue fantasy, simply comment on this post by naming your favorite barbecue joint. Typical Serious Eats contest rules apply. Commenting will be open until Thursday at 6 p.m. ET. We'll announce the winner Friday morning.
