London Barbecue School

Learn to cook with fire

London Barbecue School is all about cooking with fire, great ingredients, fun and effective tuition and delicious food. We teach barbecue cookery: grilling, low-and-slow and smoking - all of it over the finest charcoal. There are group barbecue classes that individuals can join and private classes, all using the best barbecues.

Barbecue Classes

We operate at our school in Peckham from Spring until early-Autumn each year. Our main 2017 summer season has ended, although we do run our Christmas Barbecue Class in winter. Dates for our main 2018 season will be available to book in January 2018, and gift vouchers for the 2018 season will go on sale on 1st November. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will keep you up to date on developments.

Our Grillmaster Barbecue Class is ideal for relative beginners, or anyone who wants to consolidate or fill gaps in their knowledge; the Kamado Masterclass is for people who have, or are considering getting, a ceramic barbecue; the Low and Slow Class is all about smoke, ribs, more ribs and other delights; the Texas Barbecue Masterclass, is where to come for a major brisket fix; and our seasonal Christmas Barbecue class is turkey central (and a lot more!).

Outside our summer season we can sometimes arrange private classes in your home, using your barbecue.


We sell a small selection of the barbecue equipment we use ourselves. View the range in our online barbecue shop - during our summer season demonstrations at London Barbecue School are possible by appointment. Our online shop is open year-round.
