Father’s Day Class- Create your own Signature BBQ sauce- June 21st


June 21st


Looking for the perfect gift for dad that is also free? I’ve got you covered! My father in-law, Gary Schmooke, is a local BBQ master in the Quad Cities.  His restaurant Smokey’s has won plenty of awards and his signature BBQ sauce will be available in stores soon.  He has generously agreed to share his base recipe for you to then be able to create your very own signature BBQ sauce.  I’ll show you how and what to add to make it tangier, sweeter, spicier or if you don’t want to change it- you don’t have to at all and if you are local to the area, I hope to have some of his sauce available to pickup as well. Check out Smokey’s and follow on FB Smokey’s Country Diner Here.


This class is perfect for kids to do with dad or to let dad have some alone time in the kitchen creating a signature sauce to use on grilled veggies, burgers, steak, chicken… you get the idea. Invite your dad or dads you know to join along and then see who makes the best sauce! I’ll be using it on some pork chops and some fresh veggies from my CSA box from Rainbow Roots Farm  

OR… not a dad? Take the class.  It’s awesome.

After each class, I will post a picture on instagram/Facebook for you to then post a picture of your creations.  It may seem silly, but those pictures mean a lot to me and it’s been so fun watching your food photography skills advance!

Classes will stream live on FB and be available on demand there as well.  By joining the zoom class, you are able to ask questions and I am able to help you problem solve in real time.  I do not charge for these classes but donations are truly appreciated as these take significant time and ingredient cost.  If after the class, you find value and wish to donate that is awesome.  If you cannot afford to donate, but enjoyed the class, I ask that you share the links on your own social media or with friends and family and help me grow that way.  Venmo: @Becky-Schmooke or PayPal [email protected]
