Hi,

If money was no object, who runs a comp cooking class that you would most like to attend?

If you have three people, please offer all three.

Thanks!

Eric

For a MIM/MBN skew: Myron Mixon of Jacks Old South

For a KCBS skew: either guys from Plowboys or guys from Ique

All 3 would be excellent. Not certain if guys from Ique do a cooking comp class...

I would like to take Myron's (JOS) class. I like Mike Davis' (Lotta Bull) class. Also, the Johnny Trigg/Rod Gray (Old school - New School) if they are still together I hear is excellent.
Lots of new folks coming out with classes this year that I imagine will be good. Depends on if you are in their part of the country. Plowboy's and I Smell Smoke have classes in their local neck of the woods.

I missed Mike Davis last summer because of work and he was within 30 miles of my home. Talked to him on phone and he told me if I get get to Myron's class to do so. I will be there in April.

Myron's class
Mike Davis's class
and I am lucky enough to be attending Rod Gray's class here in Tennessee at the end of April! Class is about 35 miles from me. Can't wait.

I contacted Myron Mixon about attending a class at Unadilla. It was $750.00 for one person. Is this too much, or is the knowledge gained worth the expenditure? Honestly, I would love to attend. He comes across as arrogant on the tv show, but I feel like that was just for tv. Oh, and his next class available is not til August. Lots of people interested. He was very nice in his return email.

Keep in mind that Myron also includes instruction in whole hog - that's why I think his prices are reasonable. Though he used to give discounts for team members. I didn't pay $750. Then again he wasn't a rock start when I took his class:-D

Worth is all relative.. Probably everyone who took it found it worth it, or they wouldn't have spent the money. A lot of it depends on what you're current skill level is, track record in comps or if you just want to spend $ for a fun weekend about BBQ. If you start winning or winning more frequently using what you've learned, you can consider it a return on investment.

Took Mike Davis's class and it was worth every penny. Would love to take Myrons to learn whole hog and would also like to take Rod's class for additional perspective.

Scottie Johnson and Mike Wozniak

They do an awesome job teaching and the money is going to a great cause.

That can be arranged if there is some interest. The classes I teach here are not comp oriented, but it could definitely be pointed in that general direction.
I'm sure I could add a day on either end of one of the trips!!!

Took Mike Davis's class last year, take it if you get a chance. Just went to Scotty's class, if he decides to do more- jump on it!
I'd like to take Rod's class, and if Tuffy ever gave a class I'd be first in line.

Well, you know Martin, the BIG silent type. You got him talkin?

FYI, David did teach the last FEC class in Dec. There won't be one in the spring, but maybe he'll teach again in the fall. Come back for the class, about 75 last time.

David is a WEALTH of knowledge. Stand next to him as long as you can, and you learn just from osmosis... that's how much he knows.

If money were no object. I would be willing to take a class from any BBQ cook, as all cooks cook differently and use different techniques to reach vastly different end products. I am quite sure that you could pick up something usefull from just about anybody, no matter how big of a success/failure they might be.
