I took this class last year and loved it. Both Scottie and Mike are great teachers and it was an honor to attend. Though I won't go into specifics the things I learned at this class helped me finally get a 1st in a category (chicken in Shannon, IL). I'm not the best cook in the world, but I don't suck anymore :)
If the schedule works I'll be bring my wife with me this year!
I should also say that this class helped me finally decide to get an FEC 100 stickburner (really small sticks). If you have an idea that you'd like to get an FEC but need to see one in action, and you are also planning on taking a class this would be a great one to take.
