I took this class last year and learned alot. If you are looking for a start to finish class this is the one to take. It covers everything, prep,woods, timing, temps, brands of meat, spice, sauce and boxing. If you are experienced at competitions it will help you tweak what you are currently doing. The whole CSC team was at the class along with Mike and Beth.
I have had calls at comps but never 1st place. This year I received my first 1st place call. It was in Ribs at Shannon IL. I can not remember my score exacly but it was a 177 or 178. That is as close to a 180 as i have ever been.
So now you know that 1st places in chicken and ribs at Shannon came out of Scotties class. I know many others received calls at Shannon as well. Maybe they will post something.
Not sure about breakfast and lunch for 2011 but last year in was catered by Uncle Bubs and was great.(dont shoot me for this Scottie)
All in all this is a great class and I highly reccomend it.
