We've designed this class for someone new to Kamado cooking, or thinking
of taking the step into this style of BBQing. Perhaps you have a Kamado
but don't feel that you are getting the most from it?
We'll use a Junior Kamado Joe, a Classic II Kamado Joe, a Konnected
Kamado Joe, a Big Joe III and a Big Joe II. No matter what Kamado grill
you have, or are thinking of buying however, the skills will be
transferable to a Big Green Egg, Monolith, Primo, Bastard, Pit Boss or
Louisiana Grills Kamado grill, which all work on the same principal.
This CORE SKILLS class is Hands-On, so that you can get involved in both
the preparation and cooking, if you choose to, and the class lasts about
It will be a friendly, intimate class where you can watch a Kamado
expert in action, ask questions, and be well-fed and watered throughout
- you eat everything that is cooked, or take it home with you!
The following specifics will be covered during the course;
Establishing your fire
Maintaining a constant cooking temperature - understanding the
airlflow and mastering the air vents
Utilising the heat deflector plates - should I go direct or indirect,
down low or on the top?
How to smoke on a Kamado - how to create clean smoke - different types
of smoking wood, and how to use them
Joetisserie cooking - how to build your fire for rotisserie cooking
Different cooking surfaces - what are all these surfaces for?
How to apply bbq rubs and sauces to maximise flavour onto your food
How to shutdown your Kamado when you are finished cooking
And our chef will show you how to cook a range of dishes to enhance your
Core Skills, similar to below;
Reverse Seared Pork Chops
Rotisserie Rib of Beef
Salmon with Bourbon Honey Glaze
Fire roasted Chimichurri
and a dessert of some nature too!
The course will be held in our undercover purpose built BBQ area just
outside of Hitchin, Hertfordshire SG4 7HD so come rain or shine you'll
be sure to have a cracking day.
Please note, we will be cooking across a range of Kamado-style grills -
if you'd like to see a specific Kamado in action, please contact us in

"I highly recommend this course to any cook, especially anyone new to
bbq. I bought a Kamado Joe last year with mixed success. This course has
made me far more confident in knowing how to get the best out of
operating the Joe, understanding how to light, control charcoal and
influence temperature to get the best flavour without under cooking or
over charring food.
I loved understanding how and when to use different rubs and sauces and
actually trying different types before spending money on them.
The food was amazing and has truly inspired me on how best to use these
Great tips given by the tutor throughout the course and the follow up
notes and links i will be using to keep my enthusiasm for bbq cooking x
Cant wait to serve up some delicious food to friends and family."

the course as I ate so much. A really informative and learning
experience for beginners like me a really good general understanding of
