BBQ Bootcamp in the Santa Ynez Valley

Spend a long weekend learning the 101 on grilling perfect meats.



    BOOTCAMP DEETS: The next BBQ-flavored getaway sizzles from Thursday, March 21 through Sunday, March 24. Alisal's executive head chef and the owner of Hitching Post II -- Pascal Gode and Frank Ostini, respectively -- will lend the hot-coals expertise. Starting a fire and spice rubs will be two of the topics covered, but it won't be all savory schoolwork all the time. A breakfast ride by wagon or horseback is planned for one morning, and there are more guest ranch-style activities to choose from. Plus, your welcome basket? Western-themed. If only all classes on every topic could be set at a gorgeous rustic guest ranch. Costs start at $2,650 for three nights stay and four days of tasty stuff (meals and accomos are in the mix, as you might imagine, plus any of the activities.)
