20100505potlikker_nyc.jpgNew York knows no day of barbecue greatness like the annual The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party, uniting pitmasters from all across the nation.

And on the eve of that grand event, the Southern Foodways Alliance will be throwing the Potlikker Film Fest—a one-night event, on June 11, bringing Southern food and Southern food films together.

On the menu? Catfish Tamales, French Onion Fried Pig Ears, and Sock Sausage with Sweet Potato Biscuits, plus beverages from Mississippi's Lazy Magnolia Brewery. Preparing the spread will be Elizabeth Karmel (Hill Country Barbecue, NYC), John Currence (City Grocery, Oxford MS), Ashley Christensen (Poole's Diner, Raleigh NC) and Tyler Brown (The Capitol Grill, Nashville TN). And short films shown include Cut/Chop/Cook, a documentary about the Scott family of pitmasters of Hemingway, South Carolina.

Tickets are $55 (available here) but we're giving away a pair right here on Serious Eats.
