Just in time for summer, BBQ: Blow Better Quality will focus on refining skills and furthering an understanding of the material. Hot shop demonstrations and classroom discussions will deal with various technical and aesthetic concerns. Some basic principles will be emphasized in order to facilitate problem solving. We will attempt to answer the age-old question...Where's the beef? Come prepared to work hard and play hard. Some experience required.
