Grilling & BBQ Boot Camp


July 24, 2017
2:00 PM - 8:30 PM


Culinary Institute of America, 312 Pearl Pkwy, San Antonio, TX 78215


Fire up the grills and barbecues and fill the air with the scent of hardwood and charcoal! In this two-day grilling and barbecuing extravaganza, you will rediscover the joys of America’s favorite kind of backyard entertaining. Not only will you learn to grill the perfect steak, you will also hot smoke and barbecue everything from seafood, meat, and poultry to vegetables and side dishes. You’ll also prepare traditional BBQ side dishes such as potato salad and macaroni and cheese.

From North Carolina pulled pork to Kansas City ribs, you will BBQ your way across the United States. You’ll also explore the fundamentals of food and grilling safety, discuss equipment needs
(and wants), and learn about brines, rubs, marinades, and sauces. After this intensive Boot Camp experience, you will have a newfound comfort wielding the tools of the grill.

As a Boot Camp participant, you’ll receive one chef’s uniform, with a jacket, pants, and a neckerchief. Paper chef’s hats, side towels, and aprons will be provided in class.
