Private Events: Virtual or In-Person, your choice.

Virtual Corporate_Events

Looking for Unique Client Entertainment, Team Activity or Party Idea?

Coming your way straight from Backyard Pitmasters’ private professional BYP studios, our BBQ classes are the perfect solution. There’s a new way to entertain your group with our high-quality virtual live events.  The companies we have worked with report how much their customers love the event and boast the highest retention percentage of any virtual entertainment they’ve tried (typically in the mid-high 90’s).  For less than the cost of a round of golf or a nice lunch, our Pitmaster will walk your group through a complete 90-minute interactive Texas BBQ pitmaster class.  And when they’re done, each “student” will be vested with the semi-official degree of Certified Backyard Pitmaster, complete with a diploma.


We offer you the choice of BrisketU, RibsU, TurkeyU, WildgameU, ChickensU, and now SeafoodU.
