If you are going to invest the time and money to do an MBN and want to do it right, go ahead and take a class! It's worth it, especially for MBN. I took Yazoo's class and entered my first MBN a few weeks later. We finaled in whole hog and ribs and won whole hog thanks to the information Pete and Melissa taught me!
