Learn How to Butcher, Season, and Smoke Your Own Brisket at Hill Country Brooklyn on November 22

Learn how to make your own brisket from Hill Country Barbecue during this Saturday’s pitmaster class!

You can learn the Hill Country method of perfect brisket from HC's own pitmaster, Top Chef alum Ash Fulk.

On Saturday, November 22, Hill Country Brooklyn will host a private brisket-making class with self-taught pitmaster and Top Chef alum Ash Fulk and Hill Country’s founder Marc Glosserman.

For $60, participants will go behind the meat counter to learn how to butcher, season, and smoke their own brisket.

Founder Marc Glosserman will also share the story of the family feud that turned Lockhart into the barbecue capital of Texas. Though the family — descendants of Edgar Schmidt, the owner of Kreuz Market — has long since reconciled, their differences gave way to some of the city’s most legendary barbecue and the hotly contested sauce-versus-no-sauce debate.

On Sunday, guests can stop by to pick up their brisket and take it home “after some ‘low and slow’ time in the smoker,” or bring friends into the restaurant, where Hill Country staff will carve it up and serve the brisket with some specialty sides and a complimentary pitcher of Shiner Bock Beer.

Update: This event has been postponed until further notice.
