The Academy is offering a two-day, authentic Deep South cooking experience free of charge.

Expert pitmasters, like DJ BBQ and Andy Noonan, will be on-hand to demonstrate the best ways of barbecuing and the low ’n’ slow way of Deep South cooking.

Turn your burnt burger disasters into melt-in-your mouth brisket – unleashing your inner culinary genius.

Each session, lasting two hours, has been specially designed with food-lovers in mind and aims to equip them with the skills and everything they need to know on how to BBQ slow.

Learn the art of fire grilling, smoking meats at home, making the ultimate Deep South sauces, selecting the right equipment and the all-important meat selection.

DJ BBQ will be joined by Andy Noonan to demonstrate and serve participants a specially selected menu of Deep South -inspired dishes straight from the firepit.
