Due to last minute schedule conflicts with my Four Season dates for October, I’ve worked with the Four Seasons and the Southwest Barbeque Academy to convert the original 4-Day Four Seasons BBQ camp into a half day session on Saturday, October 20. The amazing news is that this class will be offered at a special introductory price of 50% off the regular price of $799. So spots will go fast at the insanely low price of $399. The venue is the same and will be at the luxurious Four Seasons Resort at Scottsdale. A full Continental breakfast will be served by the Four Seasons at 7:00 am and class begins promptly at 7:45 am. Students will snack on BBQ items throughout the entire morning and enjoy the 20-item BBQ they cooked in an all-you-can-eat lunch.
This class is geared towards applying competition BBQ techniques to your backyard cooking including food safety, meat selection, trimming, recipe injections, rubs, mops, sprays, sauces, temperature control, BBQ chemistry, bark formation, foiling meats, and determining doneness. The class will use a variety of smokers (WSM 18″ and 22″), wood smokers, ceramic cookers, propane grill, gas oven, and focus on wood selection and fire control.
In this six-hour class, you will work side-by-side with Harry to smoke, grill, bake, and prepare 20 different types of meats and sides. Sauces and rubs are all prepared from regular pantry ingredients. Class includes an all you can eat BBQ lunch of half-chickens, thighs, St. Louis style spareribs, Baby Back ribs, Rib Tips, Beef Ribs, Lamb Ribs, Pork Butts, Beef Brisket, Sausage, Hot Links, Fatties, Moink Balls, Salami, and Santa Maria tri-tip. Our tri tip won 1st place in the Tri Tip Championship Throwdown in 2009 in Santa Maria, California, the tri tip capital of the world.
Traditional BBQ sides that will be taught include from scratch classic BBQ beans, coleslaw, and Harry’s popular Slapilicious cornbread.
You will also learn how to prepare Harry’s famous Seared Ahi Tuna with Maui Onion Dressing.
As a special treat, a mini-whole hog will be cooked and enjoyed by students
Each student will take home a hefty box of BBQ leftovers and sides for your family to enjoy and a bound copy of SYD BBQ 101 class manual, Harry’s top-secretSlap Yo’ Daddy rub which will be made in class, a souvenir black Slap Yo’ Daddy BBQ apron (commercial grade), a frameable certificate of completion of Slap Yo’ Daddy BBQ Pitmaster Class, and one year of free technical BBQ support. Several sponsors have also been lined up with giveaways for students.
