Thursday, October 17: Tailgate Time! Beef, BBQ and Bourbon

We are firing it up out on the Fish House Deck where grilled and smoked meats and barrel-aged bourbon whiskeys take the spotlight for this event. This ultimate fall tailgating event will have Chef Chad demonstrating grilling techniques for steaks, burgers, and chicken to WOW their guests at the next big tailgating event. Chef will go through the cuts of the cow and how to best prepare each cut. In addition, he will go through a step by step process and show what sets Texas style BBQ apart. The 3-2-1 cooking method for ribs will also be explained. The menu will feature smoked Texas-style sausage, pulled beef BBQ sliders, 14-hour smoked beef brisket and ribs. To go along with the theme, Southern sides perfect for tailgating will accompany the BBQ. Three different bourbons will be featured, paired with each of the dishes including Elijah Craig Small Batch, Basil Hayden and Angel’s Envy. Participants will take home a bottle of Chef Chad’s Texas-style dry rub with recipes as well as a grilling guide – the Do’s and Don’ts of the grill.
