Thanksgiving is the time of year when families gather ‘round the dinner table in lieu of their usual gatherings ‘round the tire fire in the master bath. Make the most of this rare occasion with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a 2.5-hour holiday turkey-cooking class from Big Jim’s BBQ in San Rafael (a $100 value), with a choice from the following 6:30–9 p.m. classes held at Barbecues Galore:
- Wednesday, November 9
- Thursday, November 10
- Friday, November 11
- Wednesday November 16
- Thursday, November 17
- Friday November 18
Award-winning pit master Jim Modesitt guides aspiring home chefs through traditional and innovative holiday turkey preparations during 2.5-hour tutorials. Jim helps hosts establish new autumnal traditions with four different cooking methods, instead of resorting to fooling guests by adorning store-bought birds with family-crest tattoos. Guests will expand paltry poultry knowledge by experiencing the flavor- and juiciness-imbuing benefits of brining a turkey, a leisurely smoking method, Jim’s hunger-devastating barbecue turkey recipe, and a deep-fried-turkey technique. Class tuition includes all of the equipment and ingredients necessary to craft scrumptious birds worthy of a presidential pardon. Kitchen visitors will leave the class sporting full tummies, turkey leftovers, and the confidence necessary to fully celebrate holidays in traditional bird-devouring American style.

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.
