The popular party in New York City’s Madison Square Park celebrates its 10th anniversary this month. Pit masters from around the US will hawk samples of their specialties. Expect the longest lines at Big Bob Gibson’s Bar-B-Q stand, where Chris Lilly (photo) dishes out his famously succulent pulled pork. New this year: screenings of films featuring barbecue and a performance by famed Texas rocker Alejandro Escovedo. June 9-10; bigapplebbq.org
