If Smoke-Grilled, French-Cut Pork Chops, cooked expertly on your own grill sounds like something you need to master, here’s your chance.
As the mild, barbecue-friendly weather moves in, Garrett Stephens and the County Line barbecue team resumes its popular “Pitmaster Cooking Classes” on Friday, April 19 at The County Line on IH-10 West in the Colonnade area.
Class participants will have dinner, which is a full serving of each of three courses, as Stephens demonstrates how to prepare each dish. Guests can ask questions as he cooks, plus everyone will receive a recipe book with space to take their own notes. Pedernales Brewing Company, Rebecca Creek Fine Texas Spirit Whiskey and Enchanted Rock Vodka are the event co-sponsors.
A cocktail reception featuring Enchanted Rock vodka and Rebecca Creek whiskey with house-made ginger ale libations and appetizers begins at 7 p.m.; the class/dinner begins at 7:30 p.m.
The cost, per person, is $50, not including tax or tip. The class will be held outside on the restaurant’s shaded patio; in case of rain, the class will be moved inside. To make a reservation, contact the restaurant at 210.641.1998 or email@example.com
