GREENOUGH, Mont., May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This summer, it's time to earn an extremely tasty degree at Montana's premier luxury ranch resort, The Resort at Paws Up. As part of the first annual BBQ-U held from June 17–19, 2016, Montana Master Grillers alums Sam Huff (Sam's BBQ-1 in Georgia) and Danny Fischer (Baby Blues BBQ in California) will conduct outdoor grilling demonstrations that will transform attendees from backyard beginners to searing savants. Guests will learn the techniques to cook a variety of high-quality meats and veggies like an expert, get up close and personal for demonstrations (including a whole hog presentation) and enjoy the grill masters' fine cooking, culminating in a stunning Montana Long Table dinner. Participants will take all of this in amidst Montana's majestic outdoors, luxury accommodations and outdoor adventure opportunities.
Demonstrations and Dinners Demonstrations throughout the weekend include a South American cooking demonstration featuring Argentinian, Brazilian and Colombian fare, with a focus on rubs, seasonings and techniques. A Far East cooking demonstration will explore Indonesian, Japanese, Malaysian and Thai flavors and textures, and a good ol' American grilling demonstration will focus on heat preferences, smoke flavors and wood types. A Whole Hog Presentation will be the centerpiece of the Montana Long Table dinner on Saturday, and grilling at the Chuck Wagon Dinners along the Blackfoot River will include live Americana and bluegrass music throughout the weekend.
Culinary Talent Chef Sam Huff opened Sam's BBQ-1 in 2004 to support his longtime hobby of entering barbecue competitions and using only handmade sauces and rubs and cooking techniques that aimed for the best quality possible. Southern Living named Sam's as a "best rib-sticking joint" in the Atlanta area. Atlanta magazine awarded Sam's as one of the top 50 restaurants and top BBQ in Atlanta. CBS Atlanta also recognized BBQ-1 as the "best barbecue in Atlanta," and Zagat gave Sam's their highest food-quality rating of any barbecue restaurant in Georgia.
Cooking has always come naturally to Chef Danny Fischer. His family owned restaurants, so cooking was an integral part of his upbringing. Fischer's passion for his craft shows in his finished product. His restaurant Baby Blues BBQ is routinely mentioned as having the best barbecue in West Hollywood, California, and the restaurant is always packed with barbecue lovers enjoying ribs, chicken, grilled shrimp, sandwiches and too many sides to list.
