What is the Q-School?

Lang BBQ Smokers offers barbeque smoker cooking classes at our Q-School and cooking demonstrations at various barbeque festival events with our Q-School On The Trail. Read what people have to say about Q-School.

Classes are limited and students will be cooking on a Lang BBQ Smoker or they can bring their own. Many first time purchasers coordinate the pick up of their smoker cooker with the class so they can season the grill.

The class is suited for back yard BBQ enthusiasts, seasoned barbeque competitors and those considering opening a BBQ business (catering, mobile restaurants...).

Smoker cooking classes are held at the Lang BBQ Smoker Kitchen in Hoboken, Georgia.

Congratulations to Darryl Strickland & the Lang Competition Team
