Discover the secrets to cooking with fire and smoke – the most ancient of artisan cooking techniques – with our one-day BBQ course. Led by our in-house team, you will discover how to cook a range of delicious dishes over charcoal.

During this hands-on course, you’ll learn how to prepare a selection of meat, fish and vegetable recipes and cook them to perfection on the grill. You’ll find out how to get the best out of your BBQ, create marinades and dry rubs and try out traditional smoking techniques. Topics covered will include:

  • BBQ styles and types
  • Different types of fuel
  • Lighting techniques and cooking temperatures
  • Direct and indirect heat
  • Smoking with BBQs
  • Marinades, dry rubs and sauces

On the day, you’ll be given the opportunity to cook a range of savoury, and even sweet, food on the BBQ, including:

  • Red meats: Steaks, ribs, prime joints as well as low and slow cuts
  • Poultry: whole joints and cuts
  • Sausages, burgers and kebabs
  • Fish: whole fish, fillets and shellfish
  • Vegetables and cheese
  • Sweets and desserts.

Light refreshments will be available at midday, followed by an informal late lunch at the end of the day where you’ll be able to sample different BBQ products. All ingredients, equipment and recipes will be provided.

The School of Artisan Food is nestled in the heart of Sherwood Forest on The Welbeck Estate, Nottinghamshire, just a few minutes from the A1 and M1.
