"I just finished the first round of BBQ Stars.  It took me about three days, however, they were three of the most entertaining, informative, and enlightening days I've had during this quarantine. Please add me to your mailing list. I especially want to know when the next BBQ Stars comes out.!"

Don H.

"Just a few words to tell you how much I enjoyed BBQ Stars. It is far better than I even hoped for and is worth every cent many times over. It is so far superior to the YouTube videos out there that there is no comparison. I have looked at Masterclass courses but...BBQ Stars is far more diverse with BBQ experts. The BBQ Star launch has been really amazing, and I hope that you continue the great work. Put me on the signup list for season 2!"

Tuffy Stone

"Cooking for others is an act of love and nothing, not even sex, is more intimate and loving than feeding friends and family. My mission in life is to teach people how to cook, and I can't wait to share the Meathead Method with others."

Matt Pittman, Meat Church

What other cooks are saying about

BBQ Stars Season 1...


Curtis A.

"I love cooking on the grill and smoker and ready to learn how to prepare it right. Can’t wait to get started. Thanks for the opportunity to get in on this school!"


"You really helped my brisket game out through this epic series. Highly recommend signing up!"

Sergeant Steak

"This course is awesome. I'm only halfway through the lessons and having the ability to rewatch any of them is priceless. This is so much more than a competition BBQ class. Competition is still covered, as is fire management, charcoal vs lump vs wood, and so much more. These superstars are also as accessible for Q&A. If you've been on the fence about it, know that you will not be disappointed."


"The collective knowledge is tremendous. The production value is fantastic.The results are fantabulous!"


"I find this series of videos extremely valuable because of the attention to detail and expert descriptions each chef conveys. The wide variety of subjects was a surprise. Can't wait to try some of Harry Soo's asian fusion ideas. I've heard Dave Buska in person before but am finding that on video I can pay closer attention to his techniques. This week I cooked Matt Pittman's #meatchurchstar Texas BBQ chicken. It was awesome. Additionally, the BBQ Stars video production quality is top notch."


"Watching Harry Soo. This is the best investment I have ever made. Thanks. BBQ Stars."


'Just had Dean's Fearing backyard chicken for dinner. I have been trying to make chicken like this for ever. Reminds of being a kid again. Thanks Dean, it was awesome."



"I've gone back through all the episodes...seeing them all at least twice... and many three or more times...

I was in the kitchen last night at midnight, mixing sauce ingredients and eating them on rolls...I hope I don't get over this any time soon...the next family reunion menu has changed dramatically..." 


"Just completed my first meet up with Tuffy. Wish I had learned from hime years ago. I'll be tweaking my methods. Awesome learning experience. Already have recouped my investment in this course. In the first video with Tuffy and many more to come. I'll be upping my game with BBQ when this series is complete."
