BBQ Cooking Classes in the GTA?

Is anyone aware of any organizations or restaurants that offer one-off BBQ cooking classes? So far I've found the Culinary Institute of Ontario but haven't been able to find out much in the way of feedback on their classes. I'd appreciate any suggestions or feedback you might have.

      Thanks, Davwud - are you talking about the Culinary Institute of Ontario classes? They have classes planned for May and June but I'm interested in comparing them against other options if there are any.

    2. The only two people/businesses that I know of who offered BBQ classes were Buster Rhino's (Ajax) and Diva Q (various locations). You can try and email / contact them if they're doing any more.

      1. Just about anything you want to learn is available on YouTube. Start here and practice, practice, practice. Time is the only thing that makes bbq better.

          Thanks, Googs! The classes are really just more of an excuse to spend some quality time with my dad on his birthday so I'd still be interested in any suggestions on classes available. I'll definitely check out some of the youtube vids on my own time for brushing up my grill skills though - thanks for the suggestion.

            Ya, BBQ is like welding. You can learn everything in like 5 minutes and it will take you years and years to master it.
