Brace for a new Blackstrap BBQ.
In advance of a Five Days of Meat chat with Eater Montreal and a weekend competition in Lake Placid, New York, premier pit boss Dylan Kier tells us that a second Blackstrap BBQ is in the works in Saint-Henri.
More Blackstrap BBQ to love is just about the best news for scores of regulars who make the trek to Verdun to get a fix of Kier's championship-caliber brisket, chicken, pork, ribs and turkey. Saint-Henri seems like the appropriate neighbourhood too.
"New Project!," tweeted Clara Barron, Kier's partner in life and business, earlier today.
Watch this space next week for more intel on the new Blackstrap BBQ.
ADDENDUM: Kier adds this bit of crucial info. The new restaurant will not be another Blackstrap BBQ per se but a "sister concept." Intriguing.
