Brisketlab & Delaney Barbecue
In April 2012, Delaney launched Brisketlab, a barbecue recipe development series in New York City. Using email marketing and social media, Delaney was able to pre-sell 3,200 lbs of brisket in 48 hours at $25 per lb via online sales. The pre-ordered meat became redeemable at his Brisketlab series which launched in May 2012, and took place in locations like rooftops and cemeteries.
Following much interest from Brisketlab, Delaney announced that he would transition the concept to a restaurant called BrisketTown. The restaurant opened on November 15, 2012 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and has received much acclaim, including Best Breakfast in NYC from New York magazine and a Time Out New York Food & Drink Award.
On April 19, 2012, Delaney opened SmokeLine, his second location, in The High Line park in Chelsea.
On June 18, 2013, Zagat announced that Delaney would join their 2013 30 under 30 list.
