    Five Star Review
    I’ve been smoking and grilling for over 20 years. A friend recommended Harry’s class and my initial thought was,”Why would I need to do this?”; But after reviewing the website I decided to pull the trigger. The class was excellent and I learned many tips and tricks that just might have me another 20 years to figure out for myself. Now I recommend the class to all of my friends. Great job Harry! Thanks.

    We took the beginning class and bought our first pit. Harry & Donna make this class so informative we are going to take it again to pick up more info that we missed while trying this gorgeous food. You will leave with a lot of knowledge and wonderfully full belly. We were eating the extra BBQ for a week. We have tried to re-create the ribs and chicken and feel competent after this class to go up against other competitors. You will not be disappointed.

    I saw Harry on BBQ Pitmasters and saw he was from California. I did a little research and found out he gave BBQ classes so I signed up. It was awesome! Harry really puts on a great class and really gets you thinking about BBQ. He has spent years learning the tricks of the trade and he holds no secrets from you. BBQ is about bringing people together with great food and Harry has helped me do just that. It doesn’t hurt the ego when my friends and family shower me with compliments about my food now. You will not go home hungry as Harry and his staff provide you with great food throughout the day. I made the mistake of eating too much too soon and had little room for the amazing food at the end. I took a BBQ class in the bay area about a month after I took Harry’s class and it was like night and day. Harry’s class is like flying first class while the other was like riding in the overhead compartment. I don’t mean to talk bad about other schools out there. I just want to emphasize that when you take Harry’s class you won’t have to go anywhere else.
