Menus Announced for Barbecue University™ 2022

Barbecue University

When the sun rises over the May River in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, Steven and staff will be firing up more than 30 grills and smokers for Barbecue University™ 2022.

And what a session Steven has planned for you—complete with recipes from his travels around Planet Barbecue and the sizzling new season of Project Fire.

So what’s on the menu? Smoked gazpacho and fiery piri piri prawns. Cajun hunger killer (rolled stuffed flank steak) and fennel-grilled striped bass. Peking duck legs and monster beef tomahawks grilled with—what else?—garlicky beef marrow bones. Breakfast pizzas to get your day started and flaming grilled banana and chocolate French toast to bring the class to a dramatic close.

We know Barbecue University™ is special—Steven has been teaching for decades. But don’t take our word for it: Here’s what his students—many of them returning alums—have to say about the school the Food Network called “the best barbecue experience in America.”

St. Louis Ribs at Barbecue University

  • “Start with a world-class facility where attention to detail and service is impeccable. Meet people from around the world and cook world-class barbecue using a wide variety of equipment. Trust me you’ll want to come back,” writes Dennis B.
  • “An elevated live-fire cooking experience of the highest order. Not pretentious or stuffy at all. You’ll meet terrific classmates from all over the world. Every year is a discovery waiting to happen,” writes John H., who has attended the school more than a dozen times.
  • Contributing Barbecue Editor for Southern Living, Robert F. Moss, sums it up this way: “A unique hands-on opportunity to expand your live-fire repertoire with new ingredients, techniques, and modes of cooking—in the unparalleled beauty of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Best of all, you get to eat the results when each day’s session is done!”

The next BBQ U takes place at the luxurious Montage Palmetto Bluff Resort on June 12-15. Yes, you’ll also have plenty of time off to enjoy boating, fishing, golf, swimming, and the spa on the more than 20,000 acres of this prestigious resort.
