Summer BBQ Series and Class Giveaway

Last week, I got to experience one of the 11 sessions of Executive Chef Steven Patrick’s Second Annual Grill with the Chef/Barbeque with a Master at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa. This hour-long class is held outside on a nice lawn area adjacent their pool area.  The chef demonstrated different grilling techniques and made three different dishes. During the hour the chef and his helper managed to get samples out to all the attendees.They even had a raffle for whole cooked chickens, aprons and BBQ Cookbooks. Yes, I can actually say I was a winner of a chicken dinner.

The chef was full of energy and was full of knowledge when it came to grilling his recipes for the night.  My take aways from the night:

• Little baby corns are delicious grilled in garlic butter
• Beer cans make a great stand for whole chickens
• Making a citrus dressing is simple and very versatile

I am giving away a pair of tickets to one of the remaining sessions. All you need to do is comment below and tell me what is your favorite BBQ dish? I will pick one random winner on Sunday 8/21 at 10pm and that person will get to take a guest to their choice of class from the following dates below (all classes are on a Wednesday from 6:30-7:30 pm):

    As weird as it may sound, I LOVE grilled onions! Every time we grill, I through a huge tray of onions on and devour most of them myself.

  4. Darlene says:

    I love grilling tri tip. It’s almost no fail and continues on a great leftover days after.

    Grilled young lamb with fresh ground pepper and briefly “brushed” with an olive oil-honey-lemon mix to give a crust. Eaten with sliced grilles potatoes with sea salt and rosmarin.
