We are excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary and 9th edition of Brisket King NYC outdoors at Pig Beach in Gowanus, Brooklyn on April 21, 2021 at 6:00 PM. The all-inclusive event will feature 15 chefs and pitmasters cooking up the juiciest brisket you can find plus craft beer, hard cider and spirits. This will be an outdoor event, rain or shine, and follow all CDC guidelines including social distancing and mandatory mask wearing when not eating. Expect the variety of chefs and dishes you’ve come to love at past Brisket King events – just outdoors! After the awards are presented, stay for the afterparty and enjoy the food and drink at Pig Beach (not included in admission price). We are thankful for our community partner, Friends of Firefighters, and our venue host Pig Beach. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket will go to the Jeff Michner Foundation. Please buy your tickets early to support Food Karma Projects and make future events possible.
