When it comes to the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party, you pretty much know the drill. 'Cuemasters from around the country descend on New York's Madison Square Park for a weekend of meat-smoking for the barbecue-famished masses.
As experienced block party attendees know, the FastPass is the way to go. It gives you and one guest access to special express lines at all 14 of the pit masters as well as those of the other food purveyors there.
This year, we've got four (4) FastPasses worth $52 to give away to readers, and we'll be giving away one pass a day through Saturday. If you live in New York City or are willing to travel here June 7 to 8, this is your contest. Enter the contest, after the jump ...
Throw Your Hai'cue in the Ring!
To enter to win, all you have to do is COMPOSE A HAIKU with a barbecue theme here in the comments.
The best "hai'cue," as determined by the Serious Eats staff, will win.
But wait! There's more: Each day's winner will also receive a copy of Peace, Love, and Barbecue by pit master Mike Mills and Amy Mills Tunnicliffe.
And that's not all! Serious Eats head honcho Ed Levine just volunteered to lead a little guided tour early in the day on Sunday for all the winners, taking them around to meet the pit masters.
Comments will be open for entries until 12:30 p.m. May 29, 2008. One entry per community member. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply. Winner will be posted in the comments section of this post as well as on the Serious Eats Contest Winners Page.
