COVID-19 Update: BrisketU is committed to keeping you and our employees safe in these extraordinary times. Since we hold classes and private events at brewery and distillery venues, we are at the mercy of their re-open scheduling for when we can resume classes. In the meantime, we are excited to announce our all-new virtual class. These virtual dates will be posted below as we schedule them. We also ask that you please bear with us and understand that all in-person classes are simply postponed until we can be up and running again.

Class Description: Backyard Pitmaster

BrisketU’s Backyard Pitmaster class is the original introductory class designed and formulated to teach the average BBQ lover how to work a pit and create the quintessential smoked brisket, the toughest piece of beef to master.  In this class for greenhorns and experienced grillers alike, you will learn from accomplished pitmasters the art of smoking brisket from start to finish.  Learn up-close about Texas pits, choosing the right brisket, trimming techniques, rubs and prep, wood selection and smoke profiles, starting and managing a firebox, timing the cook, and slicing the end product.  In three short hours, you will be a BrisketU Certified Pitmaster.
