Aspen Barbecue

There are plenty of parallels between Aspen and New York—celebrity spotting, exorbitant real estate prices—but this weekend, there’s a connection between the two cities that’s a little less obvious: barbecue.

The first annual Big Aspen Barbecue Block Party kicks off tomorrow at noon at the base of Aspen Mountain. An offshoot of New York City’s long-running Big Apple Barbecue it’s coming West for the first time.

Admission to the event, which includes cooking demos music from bands like Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials, is free. You’ll be able to sample multiple styles of barbecue, and see how local Aspen pitmaster stack up against champion barbecuers from Kansas City, North Carolina, and Texas.

Food is $8 a plate and proceeds from the event benefit the Aspen Community Foundation.
