To really learn how to master food cooked outdoors you need to study, eat, and then eat some more.

Raichlen, who has studied the history and culture of barbecue and eaten all things grilled for more than 20 years is bringing his considerable talents to the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo., at the resort’s annual BBQ University ™.

Great grilling is first on the agenda, along with golf aciphex generic over the counter (three courses), spa treatments and shopping. All that will make you hungry — for barbecue of course.
