Special Edition:
First-Ever Pitmaster Club MEAT-UP!
The Bahamas, February 23-26, 2017

Meathead, here!

We're thrilled to announce our very first Pitmaster Club Meat-Up!

Since the launch of the Pitmaster Club in July 2014 we've wanted to incorporate in-person social and educational gatherings to serve the great community we've grown online.

Well, GrillGrate founder and CEO, and Pitmaster Club member, Brad Barrett, has invited all of us to the Bahamas to celebrate GrillGrate's ten-year anniversary.
It's February 23-26, 2017, at the Green Turtle Club Resort & Marina, on Green Turtle Cay in the Bahamas. The four-day event is a great blend of relaxation, celebration, and education. Many of your beloved Pitmaster Moderators will join in the fun, too, and fun it will be! Grilled local seafood, cookoff with steaks from Snake River Farm, pizza grilling on the beach, Joule sous vide, wood fired burgers with the BioLite Grill, dancing under the stars, an island cruise excursion to Munjack Island to check out the swimming pigs, with plenty of leisurely time to dive, snorkel, fish, socialize, and drink!

This grillin' n' chillin' experience will be open for sale exclusively to the Pitmaster Club until August 15. There are only 100 rooms available. Brad has called it "Meathead In Paradise" but I'm thinking of it as our first-ever Pitmaster Club Meat-Up because I know we're gonna sell it out! On August 15, Brad will open registration to his customers and then the public. He is giving us a head start, so let's make it ours! I want to meat you face to face!
The registration fee is $300 and it includes many of the meals and non-alcoholic drinks, and the special room rate at the resort is only $199/night, single or double occupancy, so bring your spouse!

We realize that the cost and length of time away may be prohibitive. Don't fret. We are planning other Pitmaster Club Meat-Ups in the US. As always, your input is welcome.

Yours in 'cue,
