Amp Up Your Group Grilling Game with Seattle’s BBQ and Grilling School

Connect2Classes offers group BBQ classes for team and client appreciation events

Looking for a unique alternative to your usual work party barbecue? With Connect2Classes, you can set up a group BBQ class for your team to eat, bond, and learn some grilling skills. Seattle’s summertime experts are on hand to guide students from the basics to the master-level skills of BBQ and grilling.

Local grill master Stu McMullen, of Seattle’s BBQ and Grilling School, has travelled to BBQ and grilling contests across the country, in cities like St. Louis, Memphis and New Orleans. He’s also taken classes at the Western Culinary Institute and traveled widely in Asia. He currently works with local BBQ and grilling chefs, including Eric “the Sauce King” Viken, Tom “Make It Happen” Von Glahn and Ken “Barbecue Extraordinaire” Dahlstrom.

Stu’s skill-set now covers the best practices of many classic BBQ and grilling traditions, and he’s sharing his knowledge with students through all kinds of events. These aren’t limited to team appreciation events, either. Sharon, a local real estate entrepreneur, commented on her recent experience designing a private event with the BBQ and Grilling School.

“It was four hours of fun followed by an hour of eating!” Sharon says. “I followed the lead of some of my friends and sponsored a cooking class for some of my real estate clients.”

Sharon’s event was a huge hit. “Not only did I generate some new leads for some real estate sales, but the group had a great time,” she says. “I plan to repeat this experience every 6 months with my new clients. Not only is it a great way to show my appreciation to my clients but it is a great way to generate new leads. I will recoup my costs many times over while having a great time learning new cooking skills.”

If you have an upcoming team event, need to plan a work party, or want to show your clients some appreciation, consider a cooking class with the Seattle BBQ and Grilling School or another local Cooking School. Connect2Classes can arrange an event for you, your colleagues, new leads, family or friends.
