Default Thanks To Big Poppa Smokers - Johnny Trigg Class

I want to give a huge thanks to Big Poppa Smokers for hosting a wonderful BBQ class this weekend featuring BBQ legend Johnny Trigg!

Sterling, Jody, Brad, John, Jessie and crew put on a first class experience and treated the students, Johnny and Trish like royalty.

First, the facilities are top notch. A real classroom environment including ceiling cam and huge monitors so we could learn in a very productive environment. Non stop refreshments at our fingertips. Catered dinner, early morning donuts and ginormous breakfast burritos.

We were also provided with a goody bag full of everything Johnny used in class (well, there was no Jambo in my bag, but all the rubs/sauces etc!). We received a CD of all the pics taken throughout the room and even a poster signed by Johnny and Trish! Out of towners had their gifts shipped home free and everyone got to shop in the BPS store with a nice discount as well!

The class itself was top notch. It was Johnny going through a full KCBS cook, teaching us everything he does at a contest down to the smallest detail and answering every question asked. Add to that almost 24 hours of non-stop Johnny Trigg stories from his 20+ year BBQ cooking career and you have an amazing experience. The class size was very small so there was lots of one on one time and by the end everyone felt like Johnny's personal friend.

I can't wait to try out some of Johnny's techniques in the future and find ways to integrate some of his methods into my own cooking. I am sure it will do nothing but kick it up another notch!

To me, the experience was as much about getting to meet Johnny as it was about learning his recipes and techniques...this was BBQ fantasy camp for me and I loved every minute of it. Class went until past 10pm Friday and I was back at 2:30am to witness the lighting of his iconic Jambo. Getting to spend an extra 3-4 hours with Johnny before most of the other students arrived was priceless.

Thank you Big Poppa Smokers for putting together this wonderful experience that I will never forget!

There were students from several states so if you get the chance to go to another one in the future, don't hesitate to sign up. You won't regret it!

Thanks so much Adam..There is another live thread about the validity of classes..especially from cooks that aren't red hot. I would not go to the expense.,...and it is an expense, trust me. I make nothing off the class fee.....have ten bps employees working overtime....and all the other production costs....if I didnt believe that getting a chance to spend 22 hours with Johnny and Trish would not at the very least be a cherished memory.

A vewry small minority will critique Johnny...and miss the point...There is tons to learn spending that time with him.

Since taking the class Rhana and I have taken our bbq to a new level earning us 8 GC's this year and a trip to the Jack! We hope his teachings will elevate your bbq as well...good luck!

Dang it! I only got 3 GC's. Like I said in the other thread. On the flight out I thought this is one of the dumbest things I've done.
It turned out to be a great expirience. Sterling & crew did an awsome job.
Thanks to Johnny I got my pork out of the tank and earned my way into the Butt to Butt in Jefferson City MO this year.

I have heard nothing but great things about these classes. We were supposed to attend this last class, but a darn catering job got in the way

I can tell you this, we will NOT miss the next Feb class!

Knowing BP and his staff, I can imagine that the experience is nothing but top notch!!!!

Sure...we had one RGC...and two ther teams from our class had one each as well...I mentioned them earlier (pre-edit)but thought it best not to in case they do not wish that info to be divulged as public knowledge...I'll let them chime in if they wish to do so.

I think I'm the only one without a GC from that class

Don't forget Dale's GC from Kristies.
