NY BBQ is Growing.
Keep the home-fires burning,
While your hearts are yearning,
Though your lads are far away
They dream of home;
There's a silver lining
Through the dark cloud shining,
Turn the dark cloud inside out,
Till the boys come home.
Well, the boys and girls aren't home yet, but here in New York we're getting a new barbecue joint; Wildwood. In today's New York Post there's a great article about B R Guest's Corporate Pit Master, Big Lou Elrose and the exciting news that Wildwood will be opening next week. Big Lou is no stranger to me or to the readers of this blog. I wish him and his team much success.
Speaking of his team, as any restaurateur will tell you, a chef is only as good as the rest of his team and Big Lou has put together a great one. Matt Fisher, aka The Hampton Smoker will be serving as the Pit Master at Wildwood in NYC. So while Big Lou is off riding his bike with the other 125 BBQ-loving bikers in a ride to Washington, DC, Matt will be serving up the Que and tending the flames.
Let the flames begin!
