Learn from the Kings of the Grill, Ritch Robin and Kirk Draut, on how to get the most from your offset or upright smoker. They will share their 40+ years of BBQ experience on fire management, meat preparation, cooking, presentation and catering. Every class is a hands-on experience with brisket, ribs, chicken, and pork, as well as sauces and sides. Classes are held at the Gator Pit facility in Houston, Texas.
Ritch and Kirk have been seen on Destination America, Discovery Channel, Food Network, and the History Channel, showing off their unique BBQ style and skills. In addition to years of TGCBCA and ICBA cook-offs, they also cooked at the HLSRA BBQ cookoff, Operation BBQ Rescue for US servicemen at Camp Pendleton, and fed thousands Hurricane Katrina survivors in the aftermath of that storm.
