Paul Kirk in New York City this Sunday
Found this over on Ray's site posted by YankeeBBQ and thought you guys over near the city might be interested:
This was posted on the New England BBQ list and I thought you might be interested. I might even try to make it myself since I will be traveling home from PA on Sunday.
You are invited to join us this Sunday, May 22, 2005 @ noon for the
inaugural meeting of the NYS chapter of the NEBS (New England BBQ Society).
We will be meeting at Paul Kirk's RUB restaurant located at 208 West 23rd
Street between 7th and 8th Ave.
Barbecue is booming in New York these days and this is a unique opportunity
to meet with other local BBQ enthusiasts. While other parts of America have
BBQ society's, New York has none. As a long standing member of NEBS and the
current NYS representative it is my pleasure to invite you to help form our
NEBS was born to offer New England grillers the opportunity to learn
Southern style barbecue techniques, whether using wood, charcoal, or even
gas. Since its inception, the New England Barbecue Society has accomplished
* Promulgated the use of natural charcoals and woods for fuels

* Organized and supported BBQ cooking classes
* Organized "road trips" to many BBQ restaurants
* Developed consistent rules and regulations for cookoffs.
* Sanctioned and Judged numerous cookoffs and BBQ events
We would be pleased to have you join us for our first meeting to eat and
talk barbecue and grilling with us. There's always a lot of fun,
camaraderie, and good food.
