After a very chilly start the sun finally rose over the beer tanks at the Harpoon Brewery in Boston and warmed up the twenty students on hand for the IQue cooking class.
Personally I had a great time. But preparing for the class was a lot of work. My career as a BBQ teacher may be very short. We packed an entire contest timeline, including prep done at home in advance of a contest, into 8 hours. So, it was challenging to keep multiple tracks - cooking, meat prep, presentation - often all going at the same time and keeping the class on schedule. Also, in addition to the KCBS Four, we demo'd one of our winning Chefs Choice entries.
By the way, Harpoon has a tasty new beer that goes great with BBQ... UFO White.
