Slap Yo Daddy visits the East Coast!!
Harry's barbeque team, Slap Yo' Daddy BBQ, was featured on TLC's BBQ Pitmasters Season One. He has won 27 Grand Championship awards, 70+ first places for BBQ in continental United States, Canada, Hawaii, and England. This year alone he has won a GC or RC in an astounding 1 out of every 3 BBQ competitions he has been in. Harry has trained over 500 students across the country and many have gone on to become Grand Champion Pitmasters.
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 done-ness. The class will use a variety of smokers (Weber Smokey Mountain 18" and 22" smokers, Ceramic Grills & Smokers, Pellet Grills & Smokers, Propane Grill, Gas Oven, etc. , 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. His tri tip won 1st place in the 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 Slap Yo Daddy's 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 certificate of completion of Slap Yo' Daddy BBQ Pitmaster Class (suitable for framing) , and one year of free technical BBQ support.
Class size is limited to 15 students each day to allow the students to have a one-on-one immersive experience.
You will not have to wait for 14 hours to barbecue a brisket as two sets of meats will be used, one for the "raw preparation" and the other for the "cooked" portion of the class.

Class Size and Cost
Each class is limited in size as this is a hands-on class with one-on-one guidance. Cost of each class is $399.99 per student for 2013. Due to space constraints we will not have space for spectators or additional volunteers.
Class runs from 7:45 am to approximately 2:30 pm (arrive 7:45; we start promptly at 8:00; lunch around 1:00; conclude with certificates after lunch).
Class ending time NOTE: Please note that class may not end until 3:00 pm or later because BBQ is ready when it is ready and cannot be hurried. Consequently, please do not plan to leave before 3PM or so just in case. (You would not want to miss out on the final product and wrap up portions of the class.)
