Prepare yourself for proper pulled pork, melt-in-the-mouth brisket and a world of flame-grilled food sure to make your mouth water. Every vendor present must cook with live fire using natural charcoal and wood only, no gas or electricity allowed, so this is gonna be a proper BBQ.

This year’s fire-filled lineup, curated by pitmaster & festival co-founder Andy Noonan, has a distinct international street food vibe with New York, London, Buenos Aires and Birmingham all represented.
