Looking for experience , anywhere in the USA/UK

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

A 'newbie' here, if you want to read my Roll Call and learn a little bit about myself, please click the link:

 

http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/237161/dutch-english-to-be-smoker-looking-for-experience

 

Basically, I am an half English/ half Dutch 21 year old 'wannabe' smoker who would like to get some experience in smoking. I have studied hospitality and worked in several hospitality companies, however only front of house.

 

So this is me asking if someone knows, or is that person who either runs a smoker restaurant, catering crew or even someone who has a mad passion for smoking and would be happy to pass on their knowledge to a young lad who'd love to make BBQ smoking a bigger thing in The Netherlands, I would without a doubt work for free! This could be 2 weeks, 1 week or even longer if it needs to be.

 

Any info is welcome, that also means info like 'look further as you are not going to find anyone here!'

 

If you need any info please leave a message or PM me!

 

Much appreciated,

 

Mitch

Hello Mitch,

Maybe you should consider getting a work visa, coming to the states and getting a job at a BBQ joint for 6 months or a year. You never know what type of opportunities you might find.

YouTube is your friend.

 

You can learn a great deal watching the thousands of YouTube videos on smoking meat, smokers, modifications, recipes, and almost anything you can imagine related to smoking food.

 

Since it really isn't filtered, you do need to weigh the different opinions and approaches to problems/solutions and judge what would be best for your situation.

 

Good Luck!

I like the idea of the work visa...might even be able to get some kind of artist visa in order to study what many of us would consider the quintessential American culinary art. There are several classes held around the country that teach various smoking techniques. 

 

Texas Foodways holds a 3 day summer camp and a 2 day Brisket Camp in January every year.

Most of the big competition barbecue guys hold a class of some kind also which might be worth checking out, like Myron Mixon. 

 

These, in addition to finding some work with one of the Masters of barbecue might be a good base to build on your skills with.
