BBQ ‘n Booze w/Bruce Campbell

Our very own Midwest BBQ Institute instructor Bruce Campbell has been immortalized in print! He’s featured this month in Mission Magazine in an article about Mission’s upcoming 12th Annual ‘Battle of the Brisket‘ on Sept. 16 & 17. (Look for the article on pages 8-9.)

Mission Magazine, Aug/Sept 2016

Bruce has been instructing barbecue/grilling and beverage classes at The Culinary Center of Kansas City for years. Some of his most popular classes include our Girls’ Night Out classes – or in Bruce’s case, his class is ‘Grills Night Out’ class. It’s a fun evening to learn a thing or two about grilling while enjoying a beverage with your girlfriends. The classes generally sell out – because who doesn’t love a great reason for a GNO?!

In his free time, when he’s not teaching cooking class at The Culinary Center, Bruce puts his BBQ knowledge and experience from 30+ years in the restaurant industry to good use with RibStars, the BBQ team with whom he’s been competing since 1999.

Sign up for Bruce’s next class, BBQ ‘n Booze this coming Friday night, Sept. 9!
