Brisket King 2018

 Brisket King 2018 was off the hook and I got to see it all go down! There were smokin views inside and beautiful outside the awesome venue on the waterfront in Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY with about 500 guests gathering to see who will be named #Brisketking2018! Brisket King co-founder Jimmy Carbone hosted some of the best names in the industry to compete and judge including Nick Solares in making the best Brisket or a variation of the meat.

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!
