The Deal

  • $69 for a three-hour barbecue class for one ($135 value)

During this comprehensive class, owner Wayne Preston teaches groups of up to 20 students how to smoke meat, how to make sauces and rubs, how to barbecue at the correct temperature, what gadgets to use and where to get them, and the differences between regional barbecue styles. The class includes a tour of the Bucky's Bar-B-Q kitchen as well as a meal of barbecue pork and chicken, baked beans, coleslaw, and a grilled dessert. Students take home their own sauce and rub as well as all the recipes covered in class.

Classes are held on select Monday evenings, 6 p.m.–9 p.m. and on Saturday mornings, 9 a.m.–noon.

Bucky's Bar-B-Q

Bucky's Bar-B-Q owner Wayne Preston honed his craft at a young age, spending boyhood afternoons in his father's meatpacking plant and Wednesday nights preparing suppers for his local church. Word about Wayne's saucy ribs and pulled pork spread shortly after he founded his own roadside barbecue stand, forcing him—like the barbecue-sauce barons of years past—to expand his operations to new frontiers. Today, each of Bucky's four locations fashions heaping plates of never-frozen Boston butt, tender chicken, and St. Louis–style ribs in the traditional country style: hand-rubbed with secret seasonings and slow-cooked over a smoky fire of hickory chips. Three housemade sauces garnish slices of juicy meat served alongside traditional sides of baked beans, coleslaw, and sweet potatoes. When they aren't dishing out meals in the restaurant, Bucky's tireless staff serves parties, formal events, weddings, and flash mobs as large as 1,500 people with fully catered barbecue feasts.

Wayne shares his more than 15 years of barbecuing expertise with aspiring grill masters during in-depth classes offered at his Roper Mountain and Donaldson Center locations. Students not only learn the art behind sauces and rub but also get to eat their class materials.
