What to Bring

We will provide all the food and equipment necessary, including a variety of home-use smokers that are probably similar to what you have in your backyard. If you’re in love with your own personal smoker from home, and you want to bring it here, that’ll be fine. 

What to Wear

We’re going to be mixing and basting and chopping and cooking and smoking up a storm. If you’re doin’ it right, you’re probably going to get dirty and smoky—leave your prom dress and/or tuxedo at home. Also, make sure you’re wearing closed-toed, nonslip shoes so you don’t get sauce between your toes (not that there’s anything wrong with that).  

Note: Price includes 3 Meals + 1 Guest Pass for Dinner. If you're not satisfied with the class for any reason, we will give you your money back or let you take the class again for free.

Price is for 1 Person only
