We have teamed up with our good mates from Pro Q to host this wonderful bespoke course. Ian McKend designed and developed the very first ProQ® BBQ Smoker. With plenty of requests for a cold smoking feature, our patented & hugely popular ProQ® Cold Smoke Generator quickly followed. ProQ® is now an internationally respected brand, with more than 70 products across our domestic and professional ranges.
Whether you are a budding amateur pitmaster, a food lover wanting to expand your culinary repertoire, or a professional chef looking for the best – ProQ has earned an enviable reputation for quality, service and innovation – helping you to take your love of food to the next level. So essentially this course is ultimately designed to open up a world of possibilities with the Pro Q smokers.
As well as covering key skills such as lighting and temperature control, you’ll be learning how to cook killer meals on fire! Using a combination of charcoal and wood you’ll be taught skills from lighting techniques to controlling temperature and knowing when your food is perfectly cooked.
