It's Springtime, which means it's time to dust off the old barbecue and prep your meats because it's officially barbecue season. 

To get ourselves in the spirit of the season, we're checking out the newly released lineup for the 14th annual Big Apple Barbecue Block Party, happening June 11th and June 12th in Madison Square Park, benefiting the Madison Square Park Conservancy. 

This year's block party will host 13 talented pit masters, serving up some of the tastiest meats this country has to offer. 

Eater reported that both local and national specialists will be participating, so check out the full lineup below.
