You’ll learn step-by-step some incredible recipes that you can recreate at home with confidence: Smoked Crimini Mushrooms with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto and Gorgonzola, Award-Winning RibStars® Baby Back Ribs, Rub Me Tender® Prepping & Trimming Brisket & Burnt Ends, Trimming Secrets Pulled Pork, and BBQ Spiced Smoked Italian Sausage.
