Autumn 2016 BBQ Bootcamp Dates Announced

$1,575.00 two night package double occupancy*

What to expect (to quote Westways author Sarah Tenaglia):

“Master the art of Santa Maria style barbeque at the Alisal Guest Ranch, a picturesque resort in the hills of Solvang.  Executive Chef Pascal Godé teams up with Hitching Post II owner Frank Ostini for an entertaining and educational midweek getaway. 

Wednesday evening begins with a discussion of crank-style grills and an instructive demo on how to build an open-flame red-oak fire.  Afterward, the group is treated to an assortment of oak-grilled appetizers, followed by a sit-down feast of prime rib steaks, tri-tip, chicken, and vegetables.  Complimentary wine and beer are served.

On Thursday afternoon, guests will learn how to make their own signature blend for beef, chicken and fish.  That evening, the spices will be used to flavor their entrées.  Chefs and winemakers are on hand to help with any questions.”
