Some of our very own stars were Yehuda Joffre if Judd’s Memphis Kitchen together with Bosh Boshnack of Boshs Meat who prepared Burnt End Hush Puppy Sliders with candied Jalapeño and Mainhouse Smokehouse from Mill Basin, Brooklyn serving Brisket over smoked Lamb Plov.
We had some awesome representation in the past with the 2016 and 2017 winners being Ari White of The Wandering Q and Sruli Eidelman of Izzy’s BBQ from Crown Heights, Mendel Segal also known as the BBQ Rabbi from the delicious Backyard BBQ in Surfside, FL was there giving a hand in the field he knows so well! Some kosher rep made it into the top 3 this year with Nobo’s Chef Joshua Massin out of Teaneck, NJ coming in 3rd place! His Brisket Ramen was insane. Combining handmade ramen, tonkatsu broth, wakame, ginger and scallion duckfat, mushroom tare, soy poached oakwood shiitake,raw scallion, togarashi, beet marinated onsen egg and of course Brisket rubbed and cooked to a tender degree! All those ingredients together- how could you not make it to the top!
Big shoutout to the first place winner out of Toronto, Canada Cherry St. BBQ and all the all-stars who competed. Looking forward to next years competition with more Kosher contestants!
