Grilling Classes

We are proud to host grilling classes at our shop in the spring and summer months as another service to our grilling community. We bring in guest chefs from around Columbus and sometimes you might even see us hosting the class. This is a very informal, educational setting, make sure to bring lots of questions, they will all be answered. Just show up, relax, and enjoy the sights, smells AND taste of backyard cuisine at its finest.

This year we have made a slight change to the class format this year. In the past, we've offered these classes for free, but we've always encountered challenges with unpredictable attendance. To ensure a great experience for everyone and to better prepare for each class, we're implementing a small change. Starting this year, we kindly request a $10 donation for each grilling class. 100% of the donation will benefit Honor Flight Columbus or another charitable organization that is near and dear to us. This adjustment allows us and most importantly the chef to plan more effectively, guaranteeing that we have ample supplies and space for everyone to enjoy a fantastic grilling session. Oh, and we'll be raising money for amazing causes! Tickets can be purchased below.
