  1. Harry puts on a awesome class weather a beginner or seasoned pro you will learn from his teachings everyone should put this class on their todo list thanks Harry you said you were blessed by bbq and wanted to give back you are definately doing that my friend thanks

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Just completed Harry Soo's BBQ class today. There was so much to learn and so much food to taste. There was never a dull moment as Harry kept things rolling continuously. Highly recommend attending and learn about all the great ways to prepare your next BBQ. Friends and family will love you and the food.

  6. I went to Harry's class last weekend and learned so much! Harry is a fun teacher and explains the "why" behind the grill/smoker, which helps a lot with understanding what's going on in the pit. I immediately came home and made the steak and coleslaw. My family said it was the best steak and slaw I've ever made. This weekend, I'm tackling pork butt and chicken in my new smoker. Take this BBQ class! Harry gives you all the tools and knowledge you need to set you up for BBQ success. Most importantly, he infuses everything he teaches and BBQs with love. He is a really great guy!

  7. Harry is the consummate teacher. He knows that teaching you how to do exactly what he did to win championships isn’t “the one thing” (as Curley put it in the movie City Slickers). Harry knows that “Why” you do something is the key and that really is the gem of his class. But there’s more! He shows you that trying new things is how you get better. Then he backs that with stories that prove it. That is the real diamond mine of this class. And if a diamond mine isn’t enough, you’ll be able to be pushed over with a feather once you get a dose of the compassion this man has for his fellow mankind. Be there or be square.

    1. Hey Chuck, thanks for your support and kind words. I love you too. Life is brief so live it with intensity – Harry Soo
