Cooking Classes and Demonstrations

q-school bbq cooking classes

Lang BBQ Smokers offers barbeque smoker cooking classes at our Q-School and cooking demonstrations at various barbeque festival events with our Q-School On The Trail. Read what people have to say about Q-School.


Classes are limited and students will be cooking on a Lang BBQ Smoker or they can bring their own. Many first time purchasers coordinate the pick up of their smoker cooker with the class so they can season the grill.


The class is suited for back yard BBQ enthusiasts, seasoned barbeque competitors and those considering opening a BBQ business (catering, mobile restaurants...).


Smoker cooking classes are held at the Lang BBQ Smoker Kitchen in Nahunta, Georgia.

Q-School Dispatch

The Fall 2012 Q-School was a huge success. Listen to what K. Chaffin had to say:

Ben, I wanted to thank you and your crew for all your warm hospitality this past weekend at the cooking class with Chef Paul Kirk. Felt welcome the minute I stopped by the factory on Thursday, until the time I left on Friday after the class. You have a good crew, I’ll even say that about your guy Buck. LOL He’s a good egg too.

I appreciate the opportunity to season my pit and getting her ready to work. And work she did at the class. She pulled home real nice, funny how nice it was as at night -the warmer it blocked headlights of vehicles behind me. It was a long drive home, but I had a lot of BBQ to eat. Let me assure you, when I got home I was not hungry.

I think that was the best way to pickup a new Lang BBQ Smoker cooker - picking it up in person and then attending a cooking class with Chef Paul Kirk was the best! It was great to learn about BBQ and at the same time get to know my new pit. I think Chef Paul Kirk did a fantastic job of teaching the class. FAR better than the class I took last time by another BBQ Pitmaster. His way of teaching and being hands on really made it work in my head. Growing up if I had a question about something I was working the answer would always be “Learn by Doing”. And that’s exactly what Chef Pauls Class was like. Chef Paul mentioned about doing more BBQ Contests, I offered my services. The man is a good egg and a great guy to learn BBQ from. Thanks again for a great smoker and a great Class. I hope to see you all again at another class or maybe even in a BBQ contest somewhere down the road. Take Care.
