Ever wanted to learn how to smoke meat like a true barbecue master? With this BBQ course, you’ll discover the art of both meat-smoking and beer tasting as you prepare a four-course meal in this fun, interactive cooking class!

Upon arrival, your host and barbecue master will run you through the class schedule while you enjoy a complimentary beer and snacks. They will then demonstrate the essentials on wood smoking, as well as tips and tricks on brining, rubbing, and whipping up the perfect marinades. You’ll then put your skills into practice, as you and the class try your hand at creating the perfect smoked meat.

As your meat is smoking, the class will two sample beers, where you’ll learn and compare flavour profiles, the importance of hops, and which beers go best with which meats.

At the conclusion of the class, everyone will enjoy the fruits of their smokey labour as you all sit down and enjoy the four courses you’ve created.

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.
