Last night was Brooklyn Yelp's to throw down with a Hoedown! And you know it was a party at Mable's Smokehouse since this morning Phil H reports, "I feel as if I crawled into a bottle of Makers Mark, slathered amazing BBQ all over my body, and then did a striptease down to nothing but a g-string and cowboy hat on! Yee-haw!" Wait, what?
Phil's peculiar proclivities aside, it was an epic event for the ages. Fittingly, Urban Cowboy was on the TV, The BBQ Band was playing some honky-tonk, and the excellent aroma of smoked meat filled the air. The kitchen turned out all sorts of down-home Oklahoma Southern samples ranging from pulled pork, ribs, mac & cheese, baked beans, collard greens, brisket, potato salad and more!
And it wouldn't have been Brooklyn Yelp's own Beer, Bourbon and BBQ festival without delicious Maker's Mark cocktails (including some made with the brand new Maker's 46) and the cans of Coors Original that chased the BBQ into our bellies.
A huge thank you goes out to Mable's staff, especially Chef Jeff and the lovely Meghan for welcoming the Yelp Elite with open arms. Whether or not you made it out, be sure to check out the pictures (including some more taken by our own Andrew D) and the reviews!
