Private Cooking Lessons

Cooking on a Big Green Egg isn’t just about low and slow pulled pork or brisket, there are so many other techniques that can be used. Have you struggled with pork crackling or do you fancy trying to bake a cake or some bread?

A private class on the Big Green Egg gives me the opportunity to pass on my knowledge, tackle some of the jargon and help you avoid some of the mistakes we have all made. I can tailor a private lesson to expand your knowledge of how to cook on your ceramic barbecue so that you can extend your repertoire and impress your family and friends even further.

A typical private lesson will involve the following techniques but everything can be tailored to you needs:

Reverse Sear


I also offer group classes. In 2017 I hope to give some of these from my own home.

BBQing at its Best!!!

What a fantastic experience! Having recently bought a BGE, Nic came highly recommend. He did not disappoint. Nic talked me through a number of aspects of cooking – from the “science of bbqing” to the practical aspects with tips and hints along the way. The variety of the meats and cooking techniques were brilliant and I look forward to recreating many of these. Our guests had a brilliant time and Nic is very easy going and fun. I’m already looking forward to the next session! Thank you Nic.

Guru it was an absolute pleasure. I’m looking forward to hearing about all your future cooks and your successes with Picanhas. Don’t tell any of your neighbours about the cut otherwise that local butcher will work out how much they should be charging.

Excellent day

Really fun and tasty day with Nic. Can’t recommend highly enough and really think that it is a must-do if you have bought a Big Green Egg,

We were fortunate enough to host Nic at our house for the class. It was worth every penny and should be a compulsory part of acquiring a BGE to explore its full potential – quite apart from being highly enjoyable and delicious. Nic is a born teacher with huge amounts of energy and knowledge about many aspects of cooking, not just on the Egg. It was great fun, our guests were full of praise and one is now starting to eat meat again! Having said that, the vegetarian courses were equally fabulous. One of the most impressive aspects was the lack sauces or marinades to bring out the meat flavours on the day. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Many thanks, Nic.

Thank you Peter and Alexander, I had a wonderful day too.

Spectacular BBQ session

Thank you for the spectacular bbq session 2 Saturdays ago – you have awoken my bbq mojo

I’ve done a reverse seared rib, redone the lamb rack and exploring fish for this weekend

Thanks so much for having me to cook and the great feedback.

The Best


We have had our Big Green Egg for 5 years and I seriously cannot believe it’s taken us this long to book such an incredible session with Nic. It was the best day, so much fun and so much banter. Nic’s energy and knowledge was absolutely amazing. If you own and enjoy cooking on a BGE you are genuinely selling yourself short by not arranging a group lesson with him, trust me. Cheers, Nic. Thanks too for the great apron and Thermapen too!!!
