Big Apple BBQ Fest

My adorable sister-in-law, Blythe, spied our wedding sparklers at the Big Apple BBQ Block Party in NYC this past weekend.  One of the sponsors of the event was Southern Living Magazine, a favorite of this Nashville born and bred girl.  A few months ago, we were asked to provide wedding sparklers for a potential spread in the July issue of the magazine.  I know never to get my hopes up, but I was feeling pretty good about this one.  Turns out, they have used the sparklers in a section about decorating for the 4th of July and recreated the table at the Big Apple BBQ Fest.  Please let me know if you see them in the July issue of the magazine.  Here are some photos Blythe sent to me this weekend…

And in case you are interested, here are her top BBQ picks:

1) Ed Mitchell Whole hog + Whole turkey (surprise hit) (Raleigh, NC)
2) Martin’s Whole hog (Nashville, TN)
3) Big Bob Gibson Pulled pork shoulder (Decatur, AL)
