All Things Barbecue has been offering cooking classes with instruction by Championship Pitmaster's since 2011. Recently, the team had the opportunity to host a private gathering for a group of Cargill managers.

“We prepared a menu that anyone could cook regardless of what kind of grill they have at home. Menu items included black bean salsa, bacon wrapped filets, a summer vegetable side dish, and a cherry and pineapple dump cake. All of the items were prepared outside on a range of grill types including pellet, charcoal, and gas,” says All Things Barbecue owner/operator Don Cary.

Offering private classes gives the All Things Barbecue team an opportunity to present their material in a less structured setting so that groups can socialize as well as learn. The classes give students a chance to get hands on with food preparation. From trimming meat to grilling their own steaks, class participants learn a variety of cooking styles.

“A couple of months ago I was searching for something to do as a social event on a Tuesday evening with some out of town managers. I had heard about All Things Barbecue’s weekend grilling classes and thought this could be interesting if I could get them to do this on a weekday,” said Cargill Facility Operations Manager Paul Kerr. He added, “I contacted them and they were more than willing to work with us. Our team of 25 had a great evening of learning about food and grilling in a very casual atmosphere. I would highly recommend All Things Barbecue when you are looking for something different to do for your next corporate or group event.”

Launched in 2009, All Things Barbecue is a click and mortar retailer of barbecue smokers, grills, accessories and more. Their store is located in the historic Delano District in Wichita, KS, and online at atbbq.com.
