Well then, we can hook you up! We’ve still got space in our early Spring and Summer BBQ Classes that will be taught at our shop in Mechanicsburg, PA and we would LOVE to have you! After a somewhat rocky start with the cancellation of our January classes due to the first of several ‘Snowpocalypses’ and a sub zero cold snap that would have made teaching impractical if not unworthy of the investment, we have got things in gear now!
We are offering courses that range from Basic to Advanced, Whole Hog and even how to start and successfully operate your own BBQ Business either as a Part-Time or Full-Time venture. Our cooking classes will not focus on how to cook ‘Competition BBQ’ although Chef is a 15+ year member of the Kansas City BBQ Society and a Certified BBQ Judge. Our reason is that we sell Primo Grills and Smokers which are geared to the home cook AND there are far more folks who cook BBQ at home than to compete. BUT…if you’re interested in learning how to compete on the ‘BBQ Circuit’, we’ve got LOTS of friends across the country that ARE teaching Competition classes and we can hook you up, just let us know when and where you’re available and we’ll look for a class that meets your needs.
Our Basic BBQ Class will cover everything that the home cook needs to know about cooking BBQ ‘Low & Slow’ over wood or coal. What cuts to use, how to prepare them, equipment needs and considerations, making spice rubs and sauces and more. Advanced BBQ will build on those blocks and further explore anatomy, butchery, preparation (including injections and cures), exploration of various time and temperature control devices and different types of smokers and more. Whole Hog will cover how to source, prepare, season, cook and serve the whole hog at home. We will cook three hogs total, two by different methods: Indirect smoking and Indirect, Top down roasting in an insulated cooking chamber. The third hog will be butchered and students will have a chance to see and understand the anatomy and techniques to break down a hog then how to cook each component.
If you’re interested in starting a BBQ Business and can’t make it to the class, we can come to you as full service Hospitality Consultants. If you’ve already got a business and need help with anything from food costs and profit margins to web site design and development or SEO…we can help you with that too! We approach every consulting customer as an individual and don’t use any ‘cookie cutter’ solutions! We listen carefully, watch operation and administration and offer objective advice that will help to improve your operation.
