Hi everyone,

I’m James McKay

Welcome to Barbechoo guys! One guy, in his back yard, cooking up some of his favourite BBQ Food in his beloved shack. I started my BBQ journey in 2015 when I purchased my first Weber bbq and the rest, as they say, is history!

I created my website and YouTube channel to share some of my passion with others and make the world a slightly better place… one perfectly cooked burger at a time ­čÖé

The bbq Class for everyone

Welcome to Barbechoo Academy

Barbechoo Academy is something that has been on my mind for a couple of years and I’ve finally been able to bring it all together – kicking off with my BBQ Basics course.

The idea was to have an online BBQ School were you can access courses from anywhere in the world. This means that if you don’t have a BBQ school in your local area, you’re covered. If a particular class doesn’t fit into your schedule, you’re covered.

BBQ Basics is all done from the comfort of your own home, on your own equipment and at your own pace. The course material is release each week for one month but you will have lifetime access so you can stop and pick it up any time you like
