This is a demo class where we will focus on sides, sauces, and sweets served alongside traditional Central Texas Barbecue, only here we'll do anything but the traditional. Because why would you serve the most amazing smoky, fatty brisket with 12 hour cooked green beans with bacon, when you could have it with Ramen instead?! And what about those fork tender, falling off the bone pork ribs with yuzu kosho and Japanese potato salad!?! Finish it off with a Whoopie Pie, but a White Chocolate Chip one, with bone marrow cream and matcha.You get where we're going here right? Japanese, Korean, and Baja sides, sauces, and sweets are perfect companions to Texas style smoked meats. Our intention is to break tradition wide open and expose you to fresh, marketable approaches and ideas. Follow us down this road and really take back some exciting, new ideas and approaches to foods we all love and hold in such high regard.
