Dry rubbed, smoked, pulled, braised and brined–no matter how you like your barbecued meat, there’s something for every meat-eating, ‘cue lover at DC’s third annual meat week. For eight nights, you can head to different restaurants around the city (and close by in Virginia) and try all sorts of slow-cooked dishes ranging from dry-rubbed Texas brisket to vinegar-based Carolina pulled pork or saucy Memphis or Kansas City ribs.
In 2005, Meat Week began in Tallahassee, FL and arrived in DC in 2009 after food blogger, Mike Bober of Capital Spice started the Washington Chapter. This year is the first that the event has expanded to eight nights.
DC Meat Week starts Sunday, January 29th and runs until Sunday, February 5th. All of the events are open to the public and most are set up as “pay as you order.” You can find the full schedule after the jump.
