Who says you can’t barbeque in the winter?
Not North Carolina natives Matthew and Ashley Weavil, owners of the brand new Fat Beagle pop-up BBQ shop who are bringing their Southern recipes — and their never-say-die attitude — to Sycamore Bar and Flowershop in Ditmas Park for a winter grill of Lexington-style pulled pork on Dec. 18.
“In North Carolina, barbeque is a noun, not a verb,” said Matthew Weavil. He and his wife recently hosted The Fat Beagle’s very first pop-up BBQ extravaganza at No. 7 restaurant in Fort Greene, and plan to continue doing special one-day cookouts in different establishments across Brooklyn, while sorting through the paperwork necessary to open a food truck. “And people eat it year round.”
BBQ freaks, summer nostalgists, and Southern expats are invited to join the Weavils on Sycamore’s porch beginning at 1pm, snow or shine — you can even keep your gloves on.
“We’ve come up with a Q in a cup,” said Weavil. “Baked beans, pulled pork, coleslaw and cornbread … in a cup.”
