Wake up call

American Smoking BBQ Cooking Class ($140): Give dad a day he (and his tummy) will remember forever with a smokin’ hot cooking class. Covering BBQ cooking techniques from meat rubs to ‘low and slow’, dad will learn from the best in the biz and get a mighty fine feed too. Classes available in Brisbane, Melbourne & Sydney.
Pack and go
