About Us

Who We Are

London Barbecue School is brought to you by the people behind School of Food, London's Travelling Cookery School. After 5 years of criss-crossing London we decided to put down roots. Why barbecue? It is our favourite way to cook and a technique we particularly enjoy teaching. Elemental, smoky and natural - no other cooking method comes close. When weren't teaching cookery classes we were always barbecuing - so it was a natural step to make all of our teaching about fire.


The equipment we use

Our barbecue cookery classes are taught using Kamado Joe ceramic barbecues (like a Big Green Egg), ProQ water smokers and Webber kettle barbecues. Some classes are dedicated to a particular type of barbecue, others use all the barbecues (though you can request to use a particular model).


Our venue

Our venue is not like other cookery schools! For a start, we do most of our cooking outside, albeit covered by a funky awning so you stay warm and dry whatever the weather. We use as much repurposed and recycled equipment and furniture as possible, so the school has a homely, festvial vibe. Our school might look unusual but we still maintain the highest standards of cleanliness, health and hygiene. Here's how to find us.
