Barbecue University™ 2021

Barbecue University - Steven Raichlen

It’s official! Steven Raichlen’s Barbecue University™ returns to luxurious Montage Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina’s Lowcountry over the Father’s Day weekend, June 17 through 20.

We’re firing up our grills (more than 30!) to salute Raichlen’s greatest hits. Expect the unexpected—and unexpectedly delectable—in this, our most electrifying, smoke- and fire-blasted session of Barbecue University™ yet.

Barbecue University

Think Lowcountry oyster roast. Wood oven salmon (with wood oven pita to go with it). Magisterial whole smoked beef tenderloin. Grilled seafood tower. Plus, spectacular salt slab-grilled chocolate brownie s’mores for dessert.

Barbecue University

Barbecue University™ is the brainchild of global grilling authority and Barbecue Hall of Famer, Steven Raichlen. You’ve read his books, including the award-winning international bestsellers The Barbecue Bible and How to Grill. You’ve watched his sizzling Project Fire and Project Smoke TV shows on PBS. Now meet and work with the man called “The Shakespeare of Barbecue”—credited with reinventing modern American grilling.

Barbecue University

The intensive, three-day course features three action-packed classes in which you do the grilling under Steven’s supervision. Each class starts with a Southern breakfast (yes, there will be bacon and biscuits), and concludes with a lavish lunch of the day’s creations. You’ll have afternoons and evenings off to enjoy Jack Nicklaus Signature golf, boating, fishing, sporting clays, and more on the 20,000 secluded acres of Palmetto Bluff.

Built on the May River in Bluffton, South Carolina, the Five-Star, Montage Palmetto Bluff offers impeccably appointed inn, suite, cottage and home accommodations. Located midway between Savannah, Georgia, and Hilton Head, South Carolina, the resort is easily accessible by air. And of course, we’ll follow appropriate Covid safety protocols in class.

Barbecue University

The Food Network named Barbecue University™ the “best barbecue experience in the U.S., while Cooking Light called us “a fantasy camp for coal heads.” Larry Olmsted of put it this way: “I have attended cooking classes and retreats throughout the U.S. and Europe, but have never experienced anything like Barbecue University.”
