Our Classes

We offer BBQ Classes that are attended by people from across the country and some foreign countries. You can learn the techniques to be competitive in barbecue contests or just be the best in your neighborhood. The schedule of classes is provided under Coming Events.

For photos from past classes, view our Photo Albums section.

Our class is designed to give you the basics for preparing great barbecue. The material includes:

  • How to choose the meats.
  • Preparation of the different meat categories.
  • Making your own signature rubs and sauces.
  • The use of herbs and spices.
  • Different types of cookers/smokers.
  • The many tools and accessories used in cooking.

The instructor, Bob Snelson, is a former KCBS Contest Representative, a former CBJ Instructor, and past KCBS Board of Directors member. Check the About Us section to learn more about him.
