Damian Buck Grilling Class

Damian Buck, Big Green Egg Grilling Class – 7/13/23

Our good friend, incredible cook and 16x BBQ Champion Damian Buck joined us once again for a Big Green Egg class. Damian demonstrated and cooked everything from this class on the Big Green Egg. This class featured recipes for smoked cheesecake, Pineapple Chipotle Wings, Homemade Ranch, and Jealous Devil Steak. These recipes were made for the Big Green Egg grill but they can be used on another smoker/grill or even in your kitchen.
