Class Description: 

It’s a “must take” class that will start at the beginning and go through each step: gas vs. charcoal; how to light a fire; determining proper fire temperatures; testing meat for doneness; why, what and when to marinate; choosing the right meats and fish for grilling; which ground beef makes the best burgers; and cooking on a cedar plank.

BBQ master, Chef Richard McPeake (aka Educator of 'Que') will share some of his favorite recipes (with flavors from around the world!) so we can show off our new skills in our own backyards. We’ll learn as he prepares dishes like: Tuscan Porterhouse Roast (now famous!), Planked Pesto Salmon, Grilled Inside-Outside Chicken Cordon Bleu, among others. Ladies and gentlemen … let the grilling begin!

NOTE: This is a demonstration class with no hands-on participation.
