In 1990, my studio apartment cost $1280 a month. It was great location, East 44th Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenue. I could not find good BBQ in NYC in 1990, so $25lb in 2012 sounds more than reasonable to me.

I am 550 miles away from new york city and the cost of liviing is outside of normal..My mortgage in my little town of 10,000 ....on a 2,300 sq ft home is what the city people pay for rent..and I sure enjoy my 3/4 acre of lawn to mow..but the guy charging 25 dollars apound is ppropbably making less profit than I am when I charge 11.00 a pound..

If I lived in New York City I would have absolutely no problem paying 25/lb for good BBQ. If I could afford to after paying rent on 200 square feet.

Let's do some math here, you will be surprised what it cost when you or I cook the food.

This is KC prices, inflate as necessary to make NY prices.

12 pound packer at $3 per pound = $36

This probably actually yields 7 pounds of meat.

Fuel for the cook $6
Spices $2-$3
Paper Towels/Gloves/Aluminum Foil $2
Disposable Cutting Board $1
Cost for capitial expense of buying the Smoker Cooker, cutlery, temp control $5-$50 depending on how much you spent and how often you use it.
BBQ Sauce $2
Injections/Marinade $2

I am sure I am missing stuff, but we are at between $56-$100 for that 7 pounds of meat so between $8-$14 per pound of cost. That doesn't cover any labor, overhead or profit AND those are Kansas City Prices.

$25 in NYC for good brisket is a very reasonable price.

If brisket is $25/lb then buffalo hump ribs must be at least $200/lb. I'll stick with the brisket and save about $150. If I am in NYC and want good BBQ then I don't really worry about the price. However, that Jewish deli down the street also sounds mighty good. I wonder what they charge for a buffalo tongue sandwich. Wagh...sounds like fat doin's in the city.

I'll just say it sucks that some have to pay that price, but location is what it is. You do what you got to do...

I'm glad to see that somebody else tenderizes brisket by stomping on it with their bare feet. I would recommend taking it out of the plastic first. Dang, now my secret's out.

I'm not sure what you mean by that. Now if you lived down South I could imagine a tone of elitism but it seems you're as north as us. There is a growing group of people here making massive amount of sacrifices to cook BBQ the old school way relying on simply wood and charcoal while many in Texas and the carolinas have switched to gassers.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding you? There's nothing among these pit cooks passion that you'd be interested in trying? What about NYC located bbq would put you off?

Hell, I bet a porterhouse at a prime steak house will cost you close to 100/person for the meal. 25/lb is a steal. I wish I could visit NYC just once. I'd make it a point to visit the joint.
