Grilling/BBQ classes?

Does anyone know of any outdoor grilling classes in the area? DH loves to grill, but I am sick of eating burnt meat and can't stomach the thought of another season of it. The New England BBQ Society has classes, but they are for improving championship-level skills. I need something basic and hands-on, from someone who knows what they are doing.

  1. Slowpokes in West Concord say that they offer classes. This is true barbecue -- slow smoking -- as opposed to grilling. The information on their site is pretty vague and sparse, but it's probably worth getting in touch to see what's up:

      Thanks for the tip--I'll get in touch with them! Other suggestions welcome!

    2. Private lessons, or could you put a group together? The other day I was thinking of teaching grilling classes to raise money for a local school. Here - I just created a hotmail account if you're interested:

      I'm not bad at it.

      1. Chef Brooke Vosika at the Four Season has a grilling class schedule for June 16th. My husband and I were his guests for a cooking class recently and he hosts a great evening. It's pricy at $140 pp. but that includes lots of food and wine. And, if you're lucky he might even break out some of the incredible dry-aged beef he keeps under lock and key.
