Spring BBQ Course

May 4 from 11:00 - 14:00


This Spring BBQ course uses seasonal ingredients and a range of techniques to make sure you get the best out of your Big Green Egg. Ideal for beginners as well as more advanced users who want to expand their repertoire, we will guide you through setting up the egg, preparing ingredients and marinades, smoking, grilling, slow-cooking, baking, and roasting. We will also look at some of the accessories available, including the rotisserie, that help get the best results for your Big Green Egg.  We will finish up with a delicious 5 course meal that you have helped to prepare and cook.

The menu for this course (which you can enjoy eating at the end of the course) is:

  • Rogate grilled Asparagus & coal-seared scallops in lemon buerre blanc sauce
  • Slow-cooked Pork Belly & Dirty Veg
  • Cast Iron Skillet Shakshuka & Lamb Merguez sausages
  • Pan-fried Hispi Cabbage with Gremolata
  • Rotisserie – Chicken Shawarma
  • Rhubarb & Ginger compote

The course will begin with the basics: setting up, lighting, and preparing to cook on the Big Green Egg. We will demonstrate the flexibility and ease of use of the Big Green Egg with the various different cooking modes.  We will also look at wood chips and charcoal to ensure you get the best results from your Egg.

Slow cooking.  We will discuss the merits of brines, marinades, and rubs as well as which cuts and ingredients work best for slow-cooking.

Roasting: Using indirect heat, we will show how to set up the oven for roasting any joint or vegetable as you would with a conventional oven.

Grilling: the Big Green Egg can do grilling like a conventional BBQ, but when you grill with the lid down, you can control the temperature precisely and avoid flare-ups so that the end result is not cremated, but cooked to perfection.

Rotisserie: Learn how to spit roast meat, fish and veg to ensure a crispy, evenly cooked, perfect dish.

Dirty: Learn to cook ingredients directly on the coals.

We will cook local, seasonal ingredients, all using different methods to give you the full experience of the Big Green Egg’s versatility.

The course will end with lunch from all the prepared foods and a question and answer session.

The course is held outside and will be hands-on, so please come dressed appropriately.

If you purchase a Big Green Egg on the day, we will refund you the price of the course.
