Summer Grilling Basics
Adult Classes and Activities / Cook -
Increase your confidence and eagerness to play with food outdoors! If you haven't grilled before or are unhappy with your results, join us for a get-up-to-speed introduction. You'll learn what to look for in simple, reliable charcoal and gas grills and instant-read thermometers; the cuts of meat that can make—or break—your grilling; fruit and vegetables that are terrific on the grill; marinades and rubs. You’ll grill them all outside the classroom door. Though I can’t bring a heavy kamado to class, I can help you improve your grilling on an Egg or Kamado Joe with Q&A. Bring an apron, an appetite, your own flatware, plates, and take-home containers to keep things as safe as possible. Masks required while we prep indoors. Extensive handout provided.
