Private Big Green Egg Cooking Classes


Why not treat your family – or even some friends to a private day of BGE cooking. Perfect as a present or just to make you feel more confident with your own EGG.

These classes are now run by Julie, as Nic is concentrating on the group classes. Julie and Nic worked together at Big Green Egg and Julie has a background in professional catering.

You’ll spend the day together cooking a number of fantastic recipes which will help to boost your confidence and open your eyes to the EGG’s versatility.

The day starts at 9.30 and we will aim to finish at approximately 5.30. There will be plenty to eat so why not invite up to 5 friends to join you.

If you want a class with Nic, you’ll have to join one of the group classes.

Note: Julie runs her own business. Private classes are not delivered by Meat Smoke Fire, but Julie does use our recipes and techniques.

Suggested Course Content

Our suggested class content is as follows but of course, this can be tailored to your needs:

  • Reverse Searing – Slow cooking a Picanha (Beef Rump Cap).
  • Searing – Cooking steak two or three ways.
  • Plank smoking – Hot smoking a salmon fillet on a wooden plank.
  • Plancha cooking – Roasted rack of lamb and roasted cauliflower.
  • Baking – Rosemary and Maldon Salt focaccia.
  • Pan cooking – Apple or flat peach tarte tatin, or maybe smoked chocolate brownie.

The classes are designed to show you a few simple recipes that use the Egg in very different setups. You can then take what you have learned and adapt it to your own cooks.

Classes start at 10:00 am but we’ll arrive at 9:30 am to get everything set up. We normally bring a second smaller Egg so that we can do a little bit of multitasking. We aim to finish at around 5:30 pm but sometimes we can go on beyond this.

Once the course content has been agreed we will give you a full list of ingredients so that you can source them from your favourite shops. We also ask that you provide charcoal and parking.

The cost of the class starts at £500 which covers Julie’s time and some travel of up to 1 hour 30 minutes. An additional charge may be agreed for travel over 1 hour 30 minutes. Julie lives in Stockbridge, Hampshire.
