During five-hour classes, novice grillers gather together for tutelage from accomplished barbecue chef Jim Modesitt, who infuses modernized San Francisco barbecue with old-school Southern influences. The chef takes students through the basics of cooking meats in grills and barbecue smokers, helping them to master firing up embers with wood, charcoal, and bottle rockets. Pupils learn to how to flavor protein cuts with injections, dry rubs, sauces, and marinades before digging in to their finished products, which may include baby-back ribs, pulled pork, and shrimp. Classes run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; check the schedule for updates.

Big Jim's BBQ

Big Jim’s BBQ entrances diners with a menu of tempting contemporary and barbecue cuisine arranged by chef Jim Modesitt. Like the annual westward migration of wood-smoking grills, the sauce-slathered bill of fare unites gourmet California treats with rustic southern cooking traditions, pairing juicy pulled pork, chicken, ribs, and brisket with hearty risottos, traditional cornbreads and beans, assorted cheeses, and crostinis. As clients sup on the tasty bounty or enroll in courses to learn the dark arts of cookcraft from the kitchen’s professional chefs and caterers, rich flavors and aromas lavish the nose and palate with a sensory celebration of fine food.

My husband and I had a great time with Big Jim and especially his BBQ. The food was great the atmosphere was fun and the info was beyond worth the price. We wish there was a restaurant we could go to for this food everyday.

I bought this groupon for my husband. He had a wonderful time. He loved both the instruction and the food that was provided.

A lot of good tips for the experienced BBQ person. Injecting the meats has greatly improved their flavor. Your pulled pork recipe is the best I've ever made. Many of the recipes in the cookbook need better explanations/instructions.
