The sold-out event at Hudson Terrace included custom-crafted BBQ creations from some of Thrillist’s favorite NYC chefs, who, along with celebrity chef Curtis Stone, conducted live cooking demonstrations, as well as performances by local blues band Baby Soda.
Guests washed down the jaw-trembling ‘cue with ice-cold Coors Light, wine from Big House, and delicious Michael Collins Irish Whiskey cocktail pairings.
When I asked Curtis why he chose to make lobster at a BBQ event, he said he wanted to make something lighter that would play on a traditional Australian dish—shrimp on the barbie. After all, "a lobster is just a bloody big shrimp," he said.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't already counting down until next year's BBQ festivities. Until then, I've got a whole new list of places to check out.
