About our BBQ School
BBQ Workshop is a dedicated BBQ School, our purpose is to teach people to barbeque like a pro.
The Workshops are run by Jackie Weight. Jackie has over 30 years experience of BBQ, producing everything from simple cooks, to low ‘n’ slow American style smokey BBQ, gourmet cooking and baking on the BBQ. She also has commercial experience in curing and cold smoking everything from bacon to salmon, as well as making fabulous sausages and burgers.
Jackie has competed in BBQ competitions around the USA, culminating in winning the Jack Daniels World BBQ Championships, considered to be the ‘Superbowl’ of Barbecue. Thus far, she is still the only non-American and only woman to ever win the prestigious Grand Champion title.
Jackie also runs a successful Restaurant Consultancy business, working with restaurants and outside caterers to produce world class BBQ; she now feels it’s time to pass on her knowledge to the public via her BBQ School.
The BBQ School is located in the village of Bethersden, just outside Ashford in Kent with easy access from the M20 Junctions 9 or 10.
Our BBQ classes are hands-on and limited to a maximum of 10 people per class to ensure that everyone is able to get involved. Our equipment includes Weber Barbecues, ProQ Stackable Vertical Smoker Barbecues, Green Mountain Grills Pellet Barbecues, Pizza oven and Rotisserie. We also have a Weber Genesis Gas Barbecue for those who want to cook on gas!
