Madison Sq Park BBQ festival strategy

I'd appreciate recommendations on the best bbq stands to go to at the festival tomorrow, since I figure there will be long lines at all. Which will be most rewarding and what particular items when there's a choice? Sorry, I do not have the list of participants, but those with last year's experience and also anoyone with a list may be able to comment.

      I thought it was tomorrow, July 4, but I do not know that authoritatively.

        The Big Apple BBQ Block Party was last month.

        Maybe you are thinking of this, which is different?

        Fourth of July Bluegrass & BBQ in Mad. Sq. Park

        Kickoff your July 4th celebrations with a pre-fireworks BBQ picnic and Bluegrass concert in Madison Square Park. The newly-opened Hill Country Barbeque Market will bring the best in Texas BBQ to the park starting at noon. Enjoy your BBQ at one of the café tables that will be set up around the Park's Northern Reflecting Pool, or bring a blanket and picnic on the Park's Oval Lawn. A live music performance by the renowned Bluegrass band Crooked Still will begin at 6:00 PM.
