BBQ & Blues


BBQ & Blues is taught by competitive BBQ Pitmaster and Author Troy Black.  He has won over 300 top ten awards including 11 state titles, countless category wins, and has been consistently ranked in the top 20 on the KCBS circuit out of over 8,000 teams.  

In this class you’ll be taught tip, tricks, and techniques on how to create authentic Southern BBQ in your own backyard.  If you think boiling ribs is the way to get them tender, this class is for you.  Boiling ribs is a big NO NO!  If you want to learn how to create over-the-top pulled pork, brisket, and ribs, this is where it begins.

The class begins on Friday afternoon, downtown Memphis. Is there a better place to host the Southern School of BBQ? Friday evening, after al the meats are prepped and put on for the night, we'll hop a trolly and make our way to Bealle Street, where we'll take a tour of some great blues joints and food landmarks. We'll get back to work, early on Saturday morning. Come HUNGRY on Saturday!
