Default Great Lakes BBQ Association Cooking Class

My wife and I attended the Great Lakes BBQ Association's first cooking class in Holly, Michigan.

It was a great class, the food was amazing, and the guys/girls from the GLBA were very friendly. The price was also amazing, $35 for me and $10 for my wife.

It included a pulled pork sandwhich for lunch. The sandwich was great and the sauce was amazing.

The classes included samples of all of the food we learned about. Off of the top of my head, we tried bacon wrapped pork loin, chicken lollipops, beef tri-tips, chicken quarters, ABT, salmon, and ribs.

There was also a segment on how to make a rub, with free samples of the instructor's rub.

I should note that the ribs were the best I ever had. It used the same sauce as the pulled pork. It is called Hickory BBQ & Grill D Soul Sauce. One of the guys who runs the GLBBA makes it and sells it.

I ended up buying 5 different bottles of sauce. Off course, I bought a bottle of Hickory BBQ & Grill D Soul Sauce.

The class was from 10:00 - 16:00. It was very well run and they managed time very well. You would not have known that it was their first class.

It was more than worth the 3 and a half hour drive from Cleveland to attend.

No problem. The ribs were great! Even my wife thought that the pulled porl and the ribs were amazing. That says alot, because she is not a fan of pork

Was I right when I guessed that you used Hickory BBQ & Grill D Soul Sauce on the ribs?

Angio,
thanks for making the trip with the weather so nasty and glad you both enjoyed the class. It was fun meeting so many people and helping with the event. The instructors really did an excellent job.
But really, you liked Bubbas ribs???? :), maybe it was jet lag from the long drive that tainted your taste buds :) :)

Take care
Scott

Love all the ribbing (LOL) My wife and I attended and got a lot out of this. We hope that you continue to put these on and let us know what we can do to help it grow. Nice to see good "Q" passion in Michigan.

Was there a class in Holly this past weekend? HA!

I was there and my one job was to tend the pit. As luck would have it, work would not let me enjoy that. Instead I sat in there watching everyone enjoying the good times while I had the freaking phone glued to my head.

I did get to enjoy the samples. And they were outstanding. The tenderloin from ford was absolutely freaking amazing.

The ribs were butt ugly but mighty tasty.
