How to smoke meats and cook American style barbecue

3 hours Class size 1 to 20 (public classes), 10 to 30 label $145 or 4 payments of $36.25 Afterpay

Produce melt-in-your-mouth brisket and learn the classic American art of barbeque meat smoking with this hands-on cooking class!

Starting off with a tasty starter, the host and chef will give you a rundown of the session over a complimentary beer, before you tuck into some pre-smoked meats so you can discuss the product and the end goal of your meat-smoking journey.

You’ll be focusing on barbecue techniques from four legendary barbecue regions including Texas, Kansas, Carolina and Memphis, what separates them and how to utilise the techniques as effectively as possible. You’ll be taught tips on rubs, timing, temperatures, and the famous Texas crutch method of smoking to enable you to make mouthwatering smoked meats at home.

The chef will also show you how to prepare fresh meat for smoking and will demonstrate how to effectively use smoking equipment, as well as making the perfect accompaniments so you can get the most out of your meat.

At the conclusion of the class, you get to sit down together and enjoy the melt-in-your-mouth, fall-off-the-bone fruits of your labour!

The BBQ Cooking School

5.0 (6)

BBQ Cooking Classes, Corporate Events & Catering. Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Hunter Valley.

BBQ School was founded in 2004 by internationally trained chef and passionate foodie Ben Farley who identified that while many Aussies were really into cooking on the BBQ, most only had one or two recipes they knew how to cook really well.

Showing keen BBQ’ers how to prepare and confidently cook a collection of simple, effective and tasty recipes was the best way forward and so in 2004 Ben turned his back on a career in Sydney and London high profile restaurants and founded BBQ School.

In our classes, we assume no knowledge but have found that the more a student knows about BBQ cooking, the more they learn from our experienced chef presenters.

To date around 90,000 people have been taught through the BBQ School.

Our head office is in Willoughby, Sydney but we also operate regular classes in Sydney's Centennial Park, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Hunter Valley and each year the School continues to grow in response to people who wish to cook with more flair when entertaining.

Absolutely fun day and highly recommend booking in. The teacher and facilitators are fantastic, everyone is relaxed and it created the perfect atmosphere for all attendees to chill out and learn something new; before enjoying some delicious food.

I went with my 28 year old son and we both found the course interesting, entertaining and inspiring. The teacher, Seamus, was amusing and down to earth and gave us practical and money saving tips, for example, in creating your own smoker. The venue was delightful (in spite of the heavy rain) - a pavilion in Centennial Park with undercover cooking area and a table set inside ready for lunch. It was a very professional operation - all highly organised, very instructive with two assistant chefs to help or hand around beers and excellent equipment. The meal, with three different meats, vegetables (all smoked) and dessert was magnificent and a jolly good time was had by all!
