We will focus on the basic rubs, sauces, and injections, as well as the fundamental temperatures and times required to produce a first class product in each meat class.




We will cover the basics, this is an introductory class designed to acquaint the attendees with the savoir-faire that is unique to the American style BBQ and ultimately learn the skills necessary to successfully repeat the process on their own.




After preparing the meats, we will slow smoke the Chicken and Ribs to eat for dinner. Later that evening we will smoke the larger meats as the will require an overnight cook.
