Weber Essentials

  • This course teaches you how to use the Weber® way of cooking to open up a world of possibilities on your barbecue. As well as covering off key skills such as lighting and temperature control, you'll be learning how to perfect steaks, roasts, pizzas and even cakes!

    Suitable for those who want to learn to cook food other than the standard barbecue fare of burgers and sausages, the Essentials Course shows how to use Weber’s renowned “lid-on” barbecue technique to grill, roast, smoke and bake! During the 4 hours you and your classmates will prepare a variety of different dishes under the guidance of an expert chef.

    Using a combination of charcoal and gas barbecues you'll be taught skills from lighting techniques to controlling temperature and knowing when your food is perfectly cooked. You'll receive a demonstration from the chef on how to cook the perfect steak and we'll ask you to get hands-on with some dough and create your own pizza!
