Big Head Ed Events



Big Head BBQ has been out and about for more than a decade plus!!


We are looking forward to 2024!







Dr. B's BBQ Institute



As featured in the National BBQ News in May 2017, Big Head Ed's real job and his BBQ passions intersect in a full week of basic BBQ teaching and learning at Minuteman Regional Vocational Technical High School in Lexington MA.


Students in the Culinary Arts program spend a week learning techniques from the Pit Master himself! Dr B retired in June of 2021 from Minuteman. He continues to do events and small group Basic BBQ Workshops from his Vermont BBQ Pit
