PHOTOS: The meatiest meat-pics from Meatopia

Fun fact: We ate the weight of three pigs in pulled pork sandwiches alone.

Meatopia, the “Woodstock of edible animals” took place this weekend at Brooklyn’s Pier 5, and Metro was lucky enough to be in attendance. We took time out from stuffing our gourds to take some pictures of the variety of fine meats on display! (All photos by Nate Jones/Metro.)

While Pat LaFrieda roasted an entire cow!
