    Online BBQ recommendations

    Hey everybody! Has anyone recently taken a BBQ class tutorial online from a pit master class or purchase any online BBQ tutorial? I usually watch YouTube and read everywhere but, was wondering if those online BBQ classes worth it or can recommend one!


    I took the Aaron Franklin MasterClass series about Texas BBQ. I thought it was really interesting, though maybe not life-changing since at the time I did not have an offset smoker. I enjoyed it though. I'm currently watching the new PitMasterU series of classes, though I haven't gotten real far as of yet. Mostly I do these things because I enjoy reading and watching how other cooks do their work and because I think that every little bit of knowledge helps.

      I did watch the MasterClass of Aaron Franklin. I agree and thought it was very cool. I will have to look into PitMasterU! Thanks!

    I don’t know if it is still available, but Meathead was involved in a series called BBQ Stars. I have it and it is pretty good.



      This bbq school teaches techniques. It is hands-on and your cooks need to be judged by yourself and a judge.
      John the instructor is available by phone, text, email. there are reading assignments and quizzes and judging reports to complete. The American Culinary Federation has approved The Master BBQ School for 50 hours of Continuing Education Credits.

      Before I started this course I texted and talk to John Head, and I am glad I did.

          I've purchased an online bbq class from BBQ Champs Academy. I purchased the class taught by Robby Royal. It's a great class. I learned a lot. I choose the class taught but Robby Royal because I think he's a great pit-master and I use the same smoker that he does.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
