After the pit master leads a discussion on topics ranging from meat selection to sauces, students partake in the hands-on preparation of a four-course barbecue meal. The menu features brisket, pulled pork, ribs, and fresh side dishes, which get devoured in a buffet-style feast at the end. Each student leaves the BYOB dinner-party atmosphere with three jars of Rub BBQ’s signature sauces and one cookbook of recipes covered in the class.

Rub BBQ Company

Unlike many barbecue aficionados, pit master Jared Leonard focuses on creating the perfect dry rub rather than devoting all his efforts to sauces. A product of years of research and pleasant taste testing, his secret dry rub includes a blend of 14 seasonings designed to sit with the meat for 24 hours prior to being slowly smoked to perfection. The blend works its magic on all of Rub's Backcountry Smokehouse's meats, which include pulled pork, sliced brisket, and smoked ribs. The housemade sauces—smoky and sweet, citrus chipotle, and smoked jalapeño pepper—complement the dry-rubbed flavor and are served on the side so that patrons can use half for their meat and half to gel their mustaches. Patrons may also supplement their meals with made-from-scratch side dishes including truffle mac 'n' cheese and custard-filled corn bread.
