Hot off the coals of the impressive second season of BBQ University™ at the historic Broadmoor, the acclaimed grilling school is firing up for 2010. Master Grilling authority Steven Raichlen, an award-winning author, journalist, teacher and the man who gave barbecue a college education leads the celebrated grilling school, touted as the “best BBQ experience in the U.S.” by the Food Network. BBQ University at The Broadmoor is a three-night, three-day interactive grilling course that offers techniques to novice and expert barbecue lovers alike. BBQ University will be held at Five-Star, Five-Diamond BROADMOOR June 10-13 and June 13-16, 2010.
“We are so pleased to welcome Steven Raichlen and BBQ University back to The Broadmoor,” says C.W. Craig Reed, Food & Beverage Director at The Broadmoor. “BBQ U is a phenomenal program due to Steven’s incredible abilities as a teacher, as well as the inspiring setting—there is truly no better place to grill than in the Rockies.”
The adventure kicks off with a welcome reception in Rocky Mountain Style! The progressive-style reception will offer several stations of gourmet Colorado cuisine and the opportunity to “meat” and mingle with fellow classmates—then the acclaimed course begins. Every morning Barbecue University ™ commences at 9:00 a.m., followed by a multi-course lunch of the dishes learned in class; after all, barbecuing is not a spectator’s sport. “Students gain confidence with hands-on experience using more than 25 wood-burning, charcoal, gas, and infrared grills, as well as kamado cookers and smokers,” says Raichlen. “The goal is for the students to learn not only what to grill, but how to grill, using the principles and techniques that will make them grilling rock stars among family, friends, and business associates.” Additionally, students of the 2010 sessions will get a chance to create recipes from Raichlen’s much-anticipated new book, Planet BBQ (scheduled to be released in Spring 2010).
Students are encouraged to bring the whole family or make it a guys or ladies getaway. After class, relax and take advantage of The Broadmoor’s wide-range of activities, from the three championship golf courses to the award-winning Spa, full children’s program, and more than 18 dining options including Colorado’s only AAA Five-Diamond restaurant, Penrose Room, beloved Charles Court, and the Adam D. Tihany-designed Summit. Add in the vast retail shops and on-property movie theater, as well as nightly entertainment at the Tavern and Golden Bee pub, and the options are limitless.
