Los Angeles BBQ Pop-Ups - Weekend of May 3rd

Abe Delgado and I are tracking the weekend BBQ pop-ups in and around Los Angeles so that we all don’t miss out on the chance to go to any of these. We really do hope this is a tool that you can use to keep track of the growing number of pop-ups dotting the Los Angeles landscape(we have added a few outside of Los Angeles for those doing weekend California road trips).

This weekend there are over 15 places you can visit to sample what is happening in the Los Angeles BBQ pop-up and ‘underground’ scene.

If you see that we are missing one, PLEASE feel free to CONTACT US via social media or this website so we can add.

Be sure to check out Abe’s new podcast - I Crush Barbecue Show
