Big Green Egg Group Cooking Classes

Big Green Egg Group Cooking Class 

New for 2019 we are offering a series of intimate classes, designed so you get the most from your Big Green Egg, while having fun with fellow Egg enthusiasts.

These classes are hands on, not demonstrations, with an Egg shared between 2 people. The course content has been tried and tested over several years of private class delivery. 

Classes start at 10am with tea, coffee and a bacon sandwich. Lunch is induced, you’ll be cooking it. We offer complimentary drinks throughout the day. We’ll aim to finish up around 5pm.

Class notes, questions and recipes will be published online for you to refer back following the class. 

You’ll also qualify for a 10% off voucher for all future classes and product purchases from the Meat Smoke Fire website.

Course COntent

The classes are designed to take you through several different cooking techniques while keeping the recipes simple so you can repeat them at home. 

  • Searing – using the cast iron grid and another technique to cook various steaks
  • Roasting – using an indirect setup to roast a chicken.  
  • Plancha cooking – cooking directly on a ceramic plancha
  • Plank cooking – hot smoking either salmon or sea bass
  • Baking – making and baking a focaccia
  • Pan cooking – Apple/Peach/Pear tarte tatin or a smoked chocolate brownie

While we won’t have time to do a low and slow cook, we will discuss the technique thoroughly and advice will be given on rubs, brining, cooking time, resting and thermometers to use to monitor these much longer cooks.
