Class Description: 

Join us for an interesting cooking class featuring regional styles of BBQ.  Before you start prepping your rubs and firing up your smoker, you need to know about some of our great country’s regional BBQ styles that characterize the unique barbecue found across the United States.

Okay, we know what you’re thinking….and while we KC locals are super proud of our own legendary BBQ, let’s keep an open mind and consider that there just might be other styles across the country that are equally as tasty – work with us here! The unique styles you’ll explore in tonight’s class are not only about the meat, but differences in cooking styles and methods, fuels used for the fire, and more.

You’re in for a real treat because you’ll learn from one of the best in the biz.  Bruce Campbell is an award-winning BBQ Pro (and boozy bartender) and has been teaching grilling and smoking classes at CCKC for many years, so you can bet your briquettes he knows a thing or two (or three!) about how it’s done.  In our finger-lickin' BBQ journey, Bruce will feature dishes like Hawaiian Huli-Huli Chicken paired with Mai Tai’s, Memphis Dry Rub Ribs paired with Jack Daniels Apple Fizzes, Alabama Chicken & White Sauce Sandwich paired with Spiked Sweet Tea.....along with mouthwatering sides like Bourbon BBQ Beans and Bruce’s favorite Grilled Potato Salad.  Yes, you’ll get to taste them all! Duh. Expect to take lots of notes in this fun and informative demo-only class. 

NOTE:  Unless otherwise noted, each evening class fee includes one glass of beer/wine with additional beverages available at a nominal cost. 

NOTE: Please be aware that all cancellations must be received prior to 72 hours before the start time of your class.  For more information, and to view all class-related policies, including cancellation, masks, and safety-related measures, please click here.
