Talking Dictionary288. Lots Of Meat And Feet


288. The Big Apple BBQ was at Madison Square Park. It occurs every June for one weekend. There were live musicians on a music stage. There were two beer gardens. There were ice cream floats and fried pies. But mostly there was meat‐barbecued meat. There were almost 20 barbecue vendors. They sold baby back ribs. They sold smoked sausage. They sold pulled pork shoulder. They sold beef brisket. There were long lines at every vendor. A barbecue plate was only $8. "What's beef brisket?" Simon asked a vendor. She said, "It's breast meat. It's boneless. You can order it fatty or lean." Simon ordered fatty brisket. He got four small pieces. No wonder it's only $8, he thought. But the meat was delicious. He threw the empty plate into one of the many trashcans. A woman standing nearby said, "This trashcan is the only place where there is no line." 2.8
