Pig Island 2015

Event Navigation


According to the event organizers:

“This year’s 6th Annual Pig Island will take place on Saturday, September 12th, and include 20+ chefs serving up specialty pork dishes made from pork sourced locally from Flying Pigs Farms. Pig Island’s mission is to support NY State farmers by purchasing heritage hogs with proceeds from the event going directly to support NY farmers.

After last year’s event, we heard you and have made some changes to improve logistics. Thus, this year’s Pig Island will be offering fewer tickets overall and adding some group packages. All tickets include all-you-can-eat pork dishes, plus all-you-can-drink beer by Sixpoint, NY State wines, cider and – new this year – whiskeys!

ALL-INCLUSIVE tickets are $85, which includes all food, craft beer, wine, cider, spirits and access to dishes served up by the following chefs (currently scheduled to attend and subject to change):

• Fleisher’s Meats
• Paul Denamiel of Le Rivage
• Chef Kurt Michael Friese, our special out-of-state guest and the founding leader of Slow Food Iowa
• Evan Hanczor and George Weld of Egg
• Pitmaster Robbie Richter, the original pitmaster for Hill Country BBQ and Fatty ‘Cue Brooklyn
• Fletcher’s Brooklyn Barbecue (Matt Fisher cooking)
• Evan Hanczor and George Weld of Egg
• Neuman’s Kitchen
• Thomas Kelly of Mexicue
• Ben Schneider and St. John Frizell the Good Fork/Fort Defiance team that brought you the famous “Merpig” from Pig Islands past
• Martin Høedholt of Revolving Dansk/Copenhagen Street Dogs
• Lance Knowling of Bluejeen (Harlem)
• Danny Mena and Evan Smith of Hecho en Dumbo
• Jimmy’s No. 43
• East Village Meat Market
• NYC Hot Sauce Company’s Jon Bratton grilling up chili peppers
• Chef Jesse Jones (Chef Jesse Concepts)
• And return of fan favorites: Michael Jenkins (Butter), Joe Dobias (Joe and Mrs. Doe), King Phojanakong (Kuma Inn) and Brisket King of NYC (and Hometown BBQ’s) Billy Durney (we’re rooting for you to be there!)

In addition, we’ll have craft beer from Sixpoint, plus more NY State wine, cider and whiskies this year. There will be great chef prizes for best dishes courtesy of sponsor WÜSTHOF. New this year: all our chefs will be grilling over Royal Oak Charcoal! We also plan on having a water vendor return this year in the event of another hot September.

Or beat the heat with your very own VIP tent! VIP tents include a private tent, table, dedicated wine service and entry for six (additional tickets can be purchased if your party is larger than six people; as always, kids under 12 are free with paying adult).”
