The Deal

  • $40 for admission for one to a barbecue-sauce-making lesson from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. with a bourbon tasting and a family-style meal (a $65 value) <p>

The event takes place on Tuesday, October 8<p>

At each event, pitmaster Gary Wiviott leads a barbecuing lesson, during which participants make an 8-ounce bottle of barbecue sauce to take home. A family-style meal—complete with six bourbon samples from maker Heaven Hill Distillery—complements the lesson, chock full of barbecue classics including pulled pork, slow smoked baby back ribs, brisket tacos, and smoked wings. Cornbread, coleslaw, and other sides round out the meal, which closes with pecan pie. A representative of Heaven Hill will be on-hand to give a short talk on the evolution of American whiskey. <p>

Barn & Company

Gary Wiviott has turned his love barbecue into a multifaceted career: he's a pitmaster, author, and all-around proponent of getting your hands barbecue-saucey. The author of Low & Slow: Master the Art of Barbecue in 5 Easy Lessons runs the barbecue side of Barn & Company—a modern take on the ol' barbecue shack—drawing on the messy traditions of Texas, Memphis, and Kansas City. The pitmaster sizzles up half-pound plates of pulled pork and beef brisket, slabs of baby back ribs, and smoky Texas sausage links, which cowboys once used to tether their horses. The meat—from pulled pork to the hearty burgers—goes down peacefully with sips bourbon and rye cocktails. While they eat, patrons feast their eyes on the eatery's plasma screens and a 200-inch plasma video wall.

Great food and fun atmosphere! It was my first time here and I will definitely be back.

Excellent service. Chicken wings with rub the best. Brisket was fatty but very tasteful and tender.
