Registration begins at 7 a.m., giving students time to introduce themselves to the pit masters and chefs as they help themselves to coffee and snacks before the morning session, which begins at 8 a.m. During the session, students prepare deep-fried turkeys they will eat at lunch. After lunch, an afternoon session introduces ribs and tri-tips, which will be served for dinner before students finish their day with a Q&A with their instructors.

California BBQ Institute

Tearing into a perfectly charred, sauce-covered rack of ribs satisfies the stomach, and the knowledge that you made them yourself feeds the soul. Students can do just that in classes held by the nonprofit organization California BBQ Association, which shares all of its proceeds with children’s charities throughout the state. The course catalogue includes beginner and advanced classes led by pit masters such as Ric Gilbert, an inductee to the association’s hall of fame, and Harry Soo, a contestant from the first season of TLC’s BBQ Pitmasters. Fees cover the equipment and food needed to prepare dishes, freeing students from having to stop at a barbecue-sauce river and fill up some water bottles on their way to class.
