The Smokehouse: Pop-Up Kosher BBQ to Hit NYC

Gemstone Catering, the company behind "Got Cholent", Is launching NY's first KOSHER "Pop-up" BBQ Restaurant: The Smokehouse, which will set up shop in the parking lot of the Riverdale Temple between Sunday, August 5 through Thursday 9th from 4-10pm.

Chef/Owner of Gemstone, Ari White, "just wanted to show all these 'Yankees' that BBQ does not mean slabbing sauce from a bottle onto some piece of meat and sticking it in an oven. Grilling hot dogs and hamburgers 12-18 hours of low, slow, love and smoke go into making my bbq…and this hood isn't going to know what hit it when Texas comes to town."
