What You'll Get


Barbecuing is a distinctly American art form, much like listening to jazz music and feigning an understanding of jazz music. Learn to cook patriotic cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $85, you get a five-hour competition-level barbecue-cooking class at Big Jim's BBQ in San Rafael (a $175 value). Classes are held every Sunday and some Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Barbeques Galore.

Fusing contemporary barbecue trends with southern traditions and recipes, Big Jim's BBQ's competition-level class teaches the charcoal curious the ins and outs of commanding a grill. Helmed by award-winning pit master Jim Modesitt, the class walks fledging grillers through the preparation steps behind barbie basics such as baby-back ribs and pulled pork as well as flame-broiled seafood such as salmon, shrimp, and crab cakes. Using the provided ingredients and supplies, barbecuing greenhorns learn mastery of charcoal grills, gas grills, smokers, and dragon’s breath, as Jim teaches them the intricacies of injections, dry rubs, marinades, mop sauces, brines, and homemade barbecue sauces. After class, grilling graduates can take home feasts featuring the meats of their labor or bask in the glow of mastering the earliest form of cooking.

About 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.
