Get ready for the ultimate bootcamp where you’ll eat a top-notch lunch from the pit, and learn the fundamentals of low ‘n’ slow BBQ cooking. Pitmaster, Jimmy Macken, will show you how to get the most out of your backyard BBQ. You will get the low down on competition from Mike Covich (a legend in the growing New Zealand competition scene), and you’ll meet the butcher who will talk you through the technical cuts on meat.
Relaxed and fun, this bootcamp will be packed with information on how to choose cuts of meat, make rubs from scratch, trim your meats, make and manage your fire, make and mops spritz and BBQ sauce, and you’ll even learn all the fun things to do with your leftovers. If you feel the primal urge to cook with fire, spend the day with Bareknuckle in the republic of BBQ.
Ticket price includes - pit master tuition, butchery class, BBQ competition introduction, a large lunch, welcome drink and a take home goodie bag including BBQ rub, sauce, a rack of swift premium St Louis-cut ribs, and a BBQ cookbook.
