American Smoking BBQ Cooking Class

Learn about American barbecue and how to smoke meats



3 hours Class size 1 to 20

label $145 (or 4 payments of $36 Afterpay)

Master the art of the American barbecue smoking with our delectable cooking class that will show you how to create the perfect brisket!

Your host and meat-master extraordinaire will start the class by outlining how the session will run, all while you enjoy a complimentary beer and some starting snacks.

You’ll be tucking into some pre-smoked meats for “research purposes” so you know the end goal of your meat-smoking journey and to discuss the variety of flavours. Focusing on barbecue techniques from four legendary barbecue regions, your chef will cover the smoking methods of Texas, Kansas, Carolina and Memphis, what separates them and how to utilise the techniques as deliciously as possible.

You’ll be shown tips on rubs and salts, and also the essentials on 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 effectively use your smoking equipment, and demonstrate how to prepare fresh meat for smoking. You’ll also be shown how to make the ideal accompaniments so you can get the most out of your meat experience.

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

4.7 (64)
3k+

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.

Good personalities and communicators. BUT all of us were beginner smokers and would have benefited from much more technical details about the smoking process. Briquettes vs coal. Do you add coal if the temp drops?. What if it gets too hot? What does smoke do to meat? Can you have too much smoke? Are there easy and difficult cuts? There are different shape and size smokers, what do they do. Then show us the meat prep, then the half way wrap then give us a feed. I enjoyed the day but could have learned a lot more.

It was supposed to be an enjoyable birthday gift for my husband but didn't live up to the expectations and previous reviews. 25 people in the class and a function next to them so they could hardly hear anything. Plus there wasn't actual lessons to be learnt. Definitely not worth the price I guess. I feel bad for gifting him such a less than ordinary experience.
