Our Classes are held in the Kent, WA area.  Full details will be emailed before the class.  Classes start and 9am and end at 4pm.



We offer two different interactive classes, both of which make great gifts for Father's Day, birthdays, Christmas, Valentine's Day, or "just because". One class focuses on basic backyard skills, while the other helps experienced men and women work on their competition skills. You can take more than one class, so feel free to start with the basics and then move on to the competitive course. The best thing is that it doesn't matter if you live in a small town or a big city - we have a class in your area! In fact, we host classes anywhere in the United States(just ask for details).

Your BBQ Class will be hosted by two decorated competetive barbecue veterans
