$99 for Barbecue Cooking Class and Lunch ($250 Value)
Classes teach everything you need to know to create flavorful meats and unique recipes. Chefs walk barbecue students through how to select the best meats, sauces, marinades, rubs, and injections. Receive hands-on experience in prepping foods, cooking various meats with different barbecue equipment, and complementing meats with appropriate appetizers and side dishes. Instructors also share how to smoke meats, fish, and cheeses, and provide insight into the world of barbecue competitions for participants willing to put their cooking to the test. Classes include a full lunch, made from the food cooked during class. Sessions are held on weekends and typically run six to eight hours.
When not dominating the awards table at local competitions, Dave Tendick enjoys cooking for others and catering events with his signature seasoned meats. Dave and the team at Smokehouse 10 have assembled a menu of heaping servings of St. Louis–style ribs, served wet or dry, as well as Texas-style brisket, Memphis-style pulled pork, and other barbecue favorites. An ambassador for flavor and the art of slow cooking, Dave also nurtures future chefs through extensive, daylong barbecue classes. Students immerse themselves in the science of sauces, rubs, and injections. Chefs at Smokehouse 10 have also mastered more eccentric fare, including cheesy corn casseroles and smoked alligator ribs.
