Award-winning barbecue masters teach small classes how to sear steaks and grill ribs. They focus on live-fire cooking skills and advanced techniques during the all-day event, which also includes a deep-fried turkey lunch, along with ribs and tri-tip in the evening. After food costs, proceeds from the class will go toward funding children’s nonprofit organizations.
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.
