Default Defending $25/lb brisket

So Delaney BBQ just open doing Aaron Franklin style brisket here in NY. He's charging $25/lb which is pretty standard for NYC. Don't tell me about some shack in the middle of no-where selling godlike BBQ for $4/lb. That dude wouldn't survive 3 mins in NYC at those prices. If you click on my site below you'll see I've traveled to plenty of very obscure little towns to eat bbq.

Plus Delaney's doing it all wood, off set smoking unlike some the gassers we go in town. It didn't surprise me that much that there were plenty of haters at those prices as most people don't know squat about BBQ. They think Chili's and Tony Roma's serve BBQ. What surprised me were some BBQ fans who thought that was too expensive.

I just looked up the price of a run down dump of a pizzeria. They sell Spaghetti with meatballs @ $10. Assuming you get 1/2 a lb of pasta, some waterdown sauce and a microwaved meatball, you're effectively paying $20 a pound for garbage. We just don't think of food weight wise.

If people are willing to pay that much money for garbage, it's kinda odd that they wouldn't see that $25 a pound isn't all that much of a premium. Not too many people I know can eat pound of cooked meat.

Considering them New Yawk yankezz rent out a broom closet and call it an efficiency Apt. for 1000.00 a month + utilities 25.00 for a Lb of good BBQ is a bargain.

If I were out of town for work and could pay $25/pound for quality brisket, I would do it in a heartbeat.

SO RIGHT!!!

"High Cost" areas demand "High Prices" and get away with it because it costs so damn much to do business there.

If someone happens to make "High Money"--I guess it works out.

It is all relative.

Austin restaurant rent from a quick glance at craigslist is $5,500 for 3600sq ft

The equivalent in NY would be $10800 and that's not even in manhattan.

Franklin would go broke charging that much here.

I can see that price in NYC, it is flat out expensive up that way. I would definitely balk at the price, but I would pay it at least once to try it.
