Optional Events: March 8
The Beef Butcher Shop: From Farm to Fork ($250)
8:00 am - 3:00 pm
Want a more advanced barbecue experience? This special Saturday event is dedicated to one of barbecue's best friends - beef! In this exciting class sponsored by the Beef Checkoff, butchers break down a steer half-carcass, taking you step-by-step through the process. See how to precisely render your favorite cuts and learn about lesser known cuts you may have overlooked. Preperation techniques are also discussed and demonstrated - and, yes, samples are provided! Space is limited in this up close and personal class.
Seating is limited for all optional events. Advance registration is strongly recommended. Walk-up registrations are accommodated on a space availability basis only. You do not need to be a full conference attendee to register for these classes. Visit the Registration Page for sign up options or go to the Conference Homepage to learn more.
