Barbecue University 2022

Are you looking for the ULTIMATE barbecue gift? The gift that keeps on giving? Then look no further than Barbecue University™ 2022!

Ladies and Gentlemen: fire up your grills!

Steven Raichlen and Montage Palmetto Bluff are thrilled to announce dates for Barbecue University™ 2022—June 12 to 15—just in time for Father’s Day.

And what a class we have for you this year, covering themes of “burning” interest, from Extreme Grilling to Wagyu Demystified to Game Day (our class on the ultimate tailgating.)

So what’s new this year? Just about everything:

A spacious outdoor “classroom” at Moreland Village, with a collection of more than three dozen grills and smokers.

Awesome new grills, like the ingenious portable Nomad (great for tailgating), a Nuke wood-burner from Argentina, and the latest tri-fuel grill from luxury manufacturer Kalamazoo.

Sizzling new menus inspired by the 2022 season of Steven’s popular Project Fire TV show on Public Television. (As a Barbecue University student, you’ll get an exclusive sneak preview of the new show, which continues to revolutionize America’s grilling.)

And this year, we’re adding BBQ mystery boxes—just like the ones you see on Steven’s TV show—in which students will receive a mystery ingredient to create an impromptu recipe for and grill by way of a final exam.

What won’t change is Steven’s informative, entertaining teaching style, and as always, you do the grilling under the master’s supervision. And of course, Steven’s innovative recipes. (When’s the last time you grilled rib “wings,” turkey “ribs,” and buffalo brisket burnt ends?)

Then, there’s our spectacular setting—the luxurious Montage Palmetto Bluff—a five-star, five diamond resort in the heart of the South Carolina Lowcountry.

Accommodations range from impeccably appointed rooms in the Inn to spacious cottages overlooking the May River. Following your breakfast, class takes place from 9 to noon (with lunch based on the days’ lesson to follow), leaving you afternoons free to enjoy golfing, fishing, biking, boating, and a world class spa on the property’s 20,000 acres.

Barbecue University™. “A fantasy camp for coal heads” is how Cooking Light Magazine described us. “I have attended cooking classes and retreats throughout the U.S. and Europe, but have never experienced anything like Barbecue University, wrote Larry Olmstead on

The Food Network voted us the #1 barbecue experience in America.
