Postby » 07 Mar 2013, 10:29

We are very pleased to announce that Harry Soo from Slap Yo Daddy fame will be coming back to the UK to run his popular 101 cooking class on the 15th June 2013.

Class Size and Cost
Each class is limited in size to 16 student as this is a hands-on class with one-on-one guidance. For 2013, cost of each class is £225 per student (US price for comparison $375). Due to space constraints we will not have space for spectators or additional volunteers.

Class Description
This class is geared towards applying competition BBQ techniques to your backyard cooking including food safety, meat selection, trimming, recipe injections, rubs, mops, sprays, sauces, temperature control, BBQ chemistry, bark formation, foiling meats, and determining doneness. The class will use a variety of smokers including WSM 18″ and 22″, gas grills amd pellet cookers, and focus on wood selection and fire control.

In this six-hour class, you will work side-by-side with Harry to smoke, grill, bake, and prepare 15 different types of meats and sides. Sauces and rubs are all prepared from regular pantry ingredients. Class includes an all you can eat BBQ lunch of half-chickens, thighs, St. Louis style spareribs, Baby Back ribs, Rib Tips, Pork Butts, Beef Brisket, Sausage, Hot Links, Salami, and Santa Maria tri-tip. Our tri tip won 1st place in the Tri Tip Championship Throwdown in 2009 in Santa Maria, California, the tri tip capital of the world.

Traditional BBQ sides that will be taught include from scratch classic BBQ beans, coleslaw, and Harry’s popular Slapilicious cornbread.

You will also learn how to prepare Harry’s famous Seared Ahi Tuna with Maui Onion Dressing.
Each student will take home a hefty box of BBQ leftovers and sides for your family to enjoy and a bound copy of SYD BBQ 101 class manual, Harry’s top-secret Slap Yo’ Daddy rub which will be made in class, a souvenir black Slap Yo’ Daddy BBQ apron (commercial grade), a frameable certificate of completion of Slap Yo’ Daddy BBQ Pitmaster Class, and one year of free technical BBQ support.
