About this experience

Inspired by the menu at Melissa Cookston's BBQ joint in Memphis, Tennessee we are hosting a pop-up eat and learn event at our HQ. When you arrive, you will be actively helping to cook smoked hot wings using the famous vortex method on the Weber Kettle.

After starters we will finish off some 3-2-1 baby back ribs by glazing them with Firefly Memphis Red BBQ Sauce and finishing them over cherry wood. Every ticket to the event includes a full 1kg of ribs for you to pig out on! We will also be cooking red beans and rice in a Dutch oven over open fire. There will be plenty of side salads, and fresh crusty bread.

For dessert our resident baker, Laura, will have prepared a classic Memphis Coconut Cake. A truly decadent taste of the American South.

We will serve a complimentary Barbacoa Rum or Low 'n' Sloe Gin for the non-drivers, and you are welcome to BYOB. There will be loads of soft drinks available. Everyone will take home recipes and instructions for all the dishes.

During this event you will learn how to cook wings using the vortex method on a Weber kettle. You will learn how to cook beans and rice in a Dutch Oven. You will learn the 3-2-1 method of cooking perfect ribs. There will be plenty of food and nobody will leave hungry.


We have ample parking at the venue. All food and equipment is provided. There will be basic toilet facilities. The venue is partially outdoors (with shelter available) so please bring a rain coat. The venue is accessible, but you may need some assistance with a low step. Children are welcome, but please be aware that we are on a very busy main road and constant supervision is required. Children do not need as ticket if you are happy to share with them.


Please note we cannot cater for allergens, dietary requirements, or special requests. Most of the main courses in this series are gluten free and if you let us know we will try and cater for gluten free. The home made cakes are not possible to make with GF flour. This event is not suitable for vegans or vegetarians! 

Food Safety

You will not be handling raw meat.  You will be provided with hand-washing facilities.  You will be partly preparing your own food and this is a learning event rather than a catering event. We are approved by the HSE to make cakes and prepare sauces in our kitchen and we have HACCP training. All other meal prep will be hands on and part of the learning event.
