What you'll do
We will start out with a tour of our beautiful historic property that has live horses, chickens, and lamb. During tour guests will be emerged in our beautiful rustic setting with over 100 palm trees, many fruit trees - grapefruit, lemon, limes, kumquats, peaches, apricots and many other fresh herbs. We will proceed with an introduction of the different styles of smokers we have on site and go over temperature control and the different characteristics each smoker has to offer. Each guest will learn how to control the air intake &/or outtake to better understand how particular smoker maintains temperature.

In 2010 PitMaster Renea Caroline started her outdoor cooking journey when she gutted her gas grill to teach herself how to cook with charcoal (and wood chunks). After many trial and error experiences she decided to start competing in the KCBS (Kansas City Barbeque Society) bbq circuit competing in Chicken, Ribs, Pork and Brisket. In 2016 she created The BBQ Yard, a place where the community could come and learn. With over 15 smokers she has created a program where novice to experts can join to learn the art of outdoor cooking. Ribs to whole pigs, the BBQ Yard has a lot to offer.
Where you'll be
The BBQ Yard is located on property of Hacienda de Cordova which was built in 1933 and is one of the historic buildings here in Avocado Heights, California.
