My wife wanted to send me to a cooking class for Valentines day, and found a BBQ school to send me to but it was expensive ($199 to $249) and my smoker at the time was kinda sucky. So she attempted to sign me up for a Sushi and Saki class for $40, but they have to build a roster of students before they have the class, and that hasn't happened yet.
Yesterday, after my boss ruined my evening, without knowledge that my boss ruined my evening yet, my wife came into the bedroom with her laptop to show me the class she wanted to sign me up for.
Here is the "class syllabus":
What You’ll Learn
- Award-winning techniques for barbecuing
- brisket with au jus
- competition style ribs
- sweet and juicy pulled pork
- tender, applewood smoked chicken
- elegant spatchcock chicken
- fancy pork loin
- and things we feel like cooking
- Recipes and methods for
- Tools, food safety, pit control
- Gourmet BBQ sides & desserts
- And a whole lot more!
The class starts at 0800 and you cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner on smokers. You can either BYOB or buy beer from them and hang out all day, drink beer, and cook good food. And at the end of the day, around 1800, you have a guest join you for a dinner of all of the foods you made during the day. I'm really excited about this! I know I could save $200 (a buddy is joining me so we each got discounted enrollment) by learning from the vast knowledge here on this forum and on youtube. But this class should really shortcut my knowledge base to a higher level.
