Smoking School

Smoking School Logo

The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture will be hosting a Smoking School on June 19, 2021. The goal of this school is to help people better understand the techniques for successful smoking of their favorite meats, to be able to enjoy the process, and share with friends and family.

The event will be held in the Brehm Animal Science Building Arena starting at 8 am to 1 pm EST. The cost to attend is $100 limited to 50 registrations. This event has sold out.

Mr. George Ewart, owner of Dead End BBQ and award winning pit master, will be leading the school.  Mr. Ewart is an architect by training, but his love for smoking allowed him to win several awards at regional and national pit master competitions. With his help, we will be teaching how to smoke pork ribs and beef brisket.  If you are interested in honing your smoking skills, make plans to attend this unique event.

If you have any questions about the school or registration, please contact: Dr. Gary Bates P: 865-974-7324
