The next Pitmaster class at the County Line, 10101 I-10 W., has been rescheduled to Nov. 18.
Garrett Stephens and his barbecue team will focus on football, now that the season is alive and well. The theme for the class will be the “Ultimate Football Tailgate Party.”
Class participants will enjoy a full serving of each o the four courses as Stephens demonstrates how to prepare each dish, taking questions from the guests as he cooks. Everyone receives a recipe book, with space to take their own notes. Sponsors are Blue Moon and Leinenkugel Beer.
A cocktail reception featuring the El Borracho Gallo Margarita from Barriba Cantina begins at 7 p.m.; the class/dinner begins at 7:30 p.m.
The Nov. 18 menu will feature: Grilled Pizza with Italian Sausage & Peppers and Basil Vinaigrette; Beer Brined, Pit-Kissed Thai Chicken Wings; Grilled Sheboygan Brats in Crème Ale and Onions on Semmel Roll (the real deal, imported from Wisconsin) and Grilled Banana Pizza with Chocolate and Hazelnut for dessert.
Beers from Blue Moon Brewery and Leinenkugel will be paired with each course.
Since the grill will be fired up, the cooking class will be held outside on the restaurant’s shaded patio; in case of rain, the class will be moved inside.
The cost for this cooking demonstration, recipe book, cocktail reception and four-course dinner is only $50 per person (does not include tax and gratuity).
This is the last Pitmaster Class for 2011, but more are planned for 2012. To make a reservation, contact the restaurant at 210-641-1998 or firstname.lastname@example.org; the last two Pitmaster Classes have sold out a week before the event.
