Cooks should bring their own Charcoal burning cooker or smoker
(NO GAS). A 22” backyard kettle or vertical water pan smoker
like Charbroil or Weber Smokey Mountain is recommend. If cooks
want to take the class but do not have a smoker we have a limited
number that we can loan out for the day. Arrangements must be
made in advance. Cooks should also bring knives, paper towels,
tongs, bucket, cutting boards, a sturdy table, aluminum foil,
hot mitt or hot pads, chairs, large bowl, fire starting equipment
(chimney or fire starter) 8×8 or 10×10 pop up tents are useful
incase it rains or shines (class will not be canceled for rain).

COOKS WILL BE GROUPED TOGETHER IN TEAMS OF TWO. If you have two or more people you want together as a team please register together or indicate on the form who you want your partner to be!
