Its yet another setback for the barely breathing New York competition barbecue circuit: Grillin' on the Bay, the citys only Kansas City Barbecue Societysanctioned contest, which had been planned for this summer at beautiful Kingsborough Community College in Sheepshead Bay, is off. Kingsborough rescinded its invitation, organizers say, leaving them only a few months to find a new location for dozens of teams and their mobile barbecue pits. One alternate being considered is Floyd Bennett Field, an empty expanse south of Marine Park in Brooklyn. We'll let you know the confirmed time and place when we hear it.
