Trying to recall name of barbecue place where you buy "shares" to use later

Hi everyone,

I'll be visiting Manhattan in 2014 and am starting to brainstorm things to do (and eat). I remember the last time I was in town a waiter told me about some special barbecue place where they release "shares" of barbecue for purchase. And then you could use those shares as you please to pick up barbecue as needed.

The way I understood it, you wait for the special day to go online and buy shares good for 50 pounds of barbecue. Then throughout the year, you can go in and redeem shares for barbecue. And it was supposedly amazing barbecue.

If anyone has heard of this and knows the name of the place, I would greatly appreciate it. I have been trying to find it online, but have not been able to come up with it.

If this sounds ridiculous to you, maybe the waiter was just messing with me.

    btw, the restaurant is in Brooklyn though they sometimes run additional stand/pop-up outlets in Manhattan Also, prepurchased shares are not required but do provide some benefits.

    Also, if you're visiting on your birthday, sign up on their website for some free meat. Enjoy!

      Thanks! Do they still offer the brisket pre-order? There's no mention of it on their website except for a page where those with pre-orders can RSVP.

      He must have still been doing BrisketLab when I was last in NY so there was lots of hype about getting a preorder to try the brisket.

        Yes. There are periodic opportunities to pre-order brisket. Best bet is to get on the email list & watch for an announcement.

        That said, buying too much brisket may impede your ability to enjoy the pork ribs or other meats & sides offered.

          You can also just walk in and order food at their Brooklyn location. Pre-ordering isn't necessary.
