Business of Barbecue is a two-day seminar* that combines cooking barbecue for a restaurant or catering operation with classroom seminars discussing branding, marketing, PR, vending, and restaurant financials. We prep and cook ribs, chicken, brisket, and pork with an emphasis on holding and re-therming techniques. We’ve found that almost anyone can make barbecue that tastes great right off the pit. How you handle the meat afterwards is the key to serving great barbecue at any time during the day.
We share information about resources and suppliers, and you get to tour behind the scenes of two of our restaurants and our catering facility. This class is filled with information that will benefit anyone from a novice to an experienced operator. Remember, just one or two new ideas or ways of doing things can add thousands of dollars to your bottom line.
We reserve the right to cancel this class seven days prior due to circumstances beyond our control, or if fewer than 12 people are registered. We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance, as there will be no refunds on travel. We advise against booking travel via third-party sites (Expedia, etc) as refunds and rebooking are much more difficult to navigate via those sites.
Cancellation policy: Refunds minus a 25% operations/processing fee will be given when cancelling prior to 31 days before the event. There will be no refunds for cancellations within 30 days of the event and a credit for a future event will be issued.
