Every year The Alisal BBQ Bootcamp has been the place to be for anyone interested in great grilling cuisine and learning how to prepare it from the best pitmasters in the world. This May 3rd-5th, the action at The Alisal will be hotter than ever, with the addition of “Firemaster” Hugh Mangum to the BBQ Bootcamp all-star lineup.
You may recognize Hugh Mangum as the owner of Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque, with 15 locations around the world (including Manhattan, Dubai, Manila and Taiwan). If you are a fan of cooking shows, you have probably seen him in action on “Cook Like an Iron Chef,” “Beat Bobby Flay” and as a champion of “Chopped.” Hugh will be sharing his personal secrets for creating slow-smoked creations with Bootcamp guests.
In addition to Hugh Mangum, the BBQ Bootcamp lineup will include award-winning cookbook author and Austin-based chef Paula Disbrowe. Also tempting appetites and teaching tasty tips, will be Valerie Gordon who is one of Los Angeles’s top chocolatiers and the author of the cookbook Sweet. She will serve as the fine desserts specialist at BBQ Bootcamp. Rounding out the team of grilling experts, will be our own Executive Chef, Anthony Endy and our BBQ Bootcamp partner since 2012, Frank Ostini, owner of the legendary Hitching Post II restaurant.
When you add up great grilling, ranch activities, complimentary wine tastings at nearby wineries and tasteful BBQ Bootcamp swag, you have all the fixin’s for an unforgettable getaway. If you’re interested in participating, we urge you to sign up soon, because space is limited and the event sells-out mighty fast.
