This is the eleventh in a twelve week series where we are unveiling the Pork Barrel BBQ Guide to a BBQ Christmas, which highlights our twelve favorite Christmas gift ideas for the barbecue lover in your life!
On the tenth day of BBQ Christmas,
My true BBQ love sent to me
A Pellet Envy Cooking Classes!
So the pitmaster in your life thinks they forgot more about smoking meats than anyone else knows – if they take the Pellet Envy Cooking Class that will no longer be a piece of fiction as they will have the chance to learn from one of the most accomplished pitmaster in the sport of competition barbecue. I hope they are good note takers!!
The Pellet Envy competition team hails from the BBQ meca of Kansas City and is comprised of Pitmaster Rod Gray and “The Closer” Sherri Gray. Rod and Sherri have been competing as Pellet Envy since 2001 and have won just about every contest you’ve heard of and just about everyone you haven’t heard of.
In 2009 Pellet Envy was crowned the Kansas City Barbecue Society’s Team of the Year. Between 2008 and 2009 they won seventeen Grand Championships and placed first in twenty-eight catagories. They are perineal competitions at The Jack and American Royal Invitational and Open contests. Simply put, they are good at what they do!
Rod and Sheri have spent years perfecting the art of barbecue and are ready to teach you their secrets over a weekend. The two day Pellet Envy Competition BBQ Class will take you through their entire competition cooking process and end with you tasting some of the best Que in the business and truly having the knowledge to reach the point in years to come where you have forgotten more about barbecue than most ever knew.
Don’t take it from us, take it from alumni of the Pellet Envy class:
“We have cooked 3 times since your class, got first place pork twice…You guys made more than a little difference. I can’t tell you how much better I am doing. Turn in time used to be when I was a wreck, not coordinated at all. Watching you in real time made me see how it could be done…the best thing is I am so excited to cook again. I cut my schedule way back this year, and now I am ready to fill it back up!” – Susan in Texas
“Just wanted to pass along some good news. By using your techniques, we just got our first Grand Champion today. Not only did we get a GC, we were 1st in chicken, 1st in ribs, 1st in brisket and 5th in pork. So just a note of thanks. This was our first comp since the class. It worked.” – Danielle in Canada
