daniel delaney was recently named the king of brisket, which isn't to say that you should take his word on the minetta tavern black label burger because i disagree and i told him this and he still made me put in writing that it is "mediocre." although now that i think of it maybe i should reinvestigate this claim because when a king of meat gives you an opinion on meat, it probably shouldn't be taken too lightly.
regardless: he's a boy from new jersey who knows his way around texas-y brisket. and as a girl from illinois who claims she knows about post-minimalism, i'm into it.
