    If this had been around in CA during my time, I might not have been so embarrassed on film day...

      The high schools here in our area of Texas offer BBQ courses for credit, a suppose as an offshoot of home economics. They also teach skills needed to fabricate their own cookers, so it’s shop meets home ec !!! Anyway good to see future Texas youth are being taught something useful !!!!

          I met a fellow who was selling his spice rubs at a local fair this last spring. Turns out that he is a high school teacher in a neighboring community and his classes are all forms of cooking with an emphasis on outdoor cooking and grilling. That would have been so cool if we had something like that. On the other hand, back then nobody cared if we had guns in our trucks at school and I wouldn't trade those days for anything.

              Good to see some useful courses that will give kids skills they can carry through life. Not like maths and speellingg and all that noncence. But seriously, how cool. I wish all schools made it regular practice to teach actual practical skills while making it fun. We don't need to know the major exports of Turkey and Laos, or the capital cities of each African country, but we do need to know how to write a check, change a tire, balance our finances, and cook!

                    Just wanted to update the reference to the National High School BBQ Association - it's https://highschoolbbq.club/ now.
                    Does anyone (by any chance) have information about the Aaron Franklin's Texas-Style BBQ course?

                      Is there anyone here from Texas Barbecue at Texas A&M University? I'm also looking for partnerships (our high school will have its first barbecue summer course). We're interested in Barbecue workshops mostly.

                      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                      slow n sear
                      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      the good one grill
                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      Grilla pellet smoker
                      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.
