201 Advanced BBQ Class
Porchetta is the main course
For larger classes a Smoked Leg of Lamb will be added
Porchetta is a fatty, juicy, amazing pork preparation that is essentially all the good parts on a pig rolled into one -literally. It’s a hollowed out pig stuffed with fresh herbs and salt so you get the cracklin’s, the belly, the loin, etc all in one preparation. It’s the Italian version of pulled pork – slow and low with lots of love, fat and flavor.
The body of the pig is gutted, deboned, arranged carefully with layers of stuffing, meat, fat, and skin, then rolled, spitted, and roasted, traditionally over wood. Porchetta is usually heavily salted in addition to being stuffed with garlic, rosemary, fennel, or other herbs, often wild.
This class will only be taught 3 times each year and it is geared for people who wish to improve on their meat smoking skills. It is not designed for those who only have a gas grill!!! Gas Grillers should take either the 4 hour steak class, the 3 hour seafood class or the basic 101 smoking and grilling class.
So for those people who want to learn more about smoking meats this is your class! During this class students will prepare three different types of competition style ribs, students will smoke and eat a Tri-Tip Steak. Students will grill an artichoke and make a wedge salad. Students will prepare and eat Chicken Leg Lollipops, they will bake a cake in a smoker as well as smoke some vegetable kabobs. For fun the students will smoke a meat loaf and make some proscuitto wrapped stuffed figs. These items will be complemented by some smoked cookies and watermelon salad.
