Hey BBQ fans, looks like 2014 is going to be the Year of You on Delta flights. Big time restaurant honcho Danny Meyer (@dhmeyer) tweeted out this mouth-watering pic at the end of last week and it appears that NYC BBQ mainstay Blue Smoke is going to hit the skies soon. They’ve already got an airport presence at JFK’s Terminal 4 as well as two Manhattan restaurants and concession stands for both the NY Mets and Washington Nationals, but now it appears you’ll be getting some high-quality ‘cue on your next Delta flight (okay, maybe not next, but soon!).
It makes sense, really. Barbecue is a food that does really well when reheated. I spoke to pitmaster (and recent Barbecue Hall of Fame℠ inductee) Adam Perry Lang about the best methods of heating up BBQ over the summer and came away shocked that the microwave is his preferred method of choice. That plays right into the on-board cooking options, so be prepared for some really tasty meals aboard Delta flights in the near future.
Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
