Class Description:
Are you ready for a summer packed full of backyard grill outs, lake days, and pool parties? We are too! May is National BBQ Month and The Culinary Center of Kansas City is prepared to show you how to take full advantage of your backyard grill!  Let’s start this hot celebration with a Summertime Bourbon Smash because…well…we can!  Then let’s join Chef Larry ‘The BBQ Dude’ Hadley and Chef Vicky Lara as  they walk you through the ‘ins & outs’ of how to create sensational grilled party foods – summer style. We’ll dive in by getting back to basics as we learn how to build the perfect fire. Then our BBQ master chefs will keep the BBQ grilling ‘how-to’ hits going as they teach you how to make the tastiest pulled pork, handmade “Fatties” (that’s ‘sausage sliders for you BBQ neophytes!), BBQ sauce, grilled vegetables and a grilled dessert.  What did she just say?  Grilled dessert?  Yup, it’s a thing. There’s more to BBQ than ‘meats’ the eye!  (See what I did there?).  You’ll be ready to impress neighbors and family alike with your new mastery in The Art of Backyard BBQ!
