Anyone on here going to this class in January? For those of you that have been, can you tell me how many people were in your classes? I think I am going to sign up today.

I also went in 2009. There were about 15 people there in August. It was a great class and really helped us out on the competition circuit. Take lots of notes!

The JOS classes were originally held to about 30 students because too many more made the class size unweildy. After the BBQ Pitmasters show debuted, interest was so great that many more people wanted in the classes, which were limited in number by Myron's busy media and competition schedule. So a custom open-air classroom was built to accommodate larger classes and still ensure everyone could see and hear everything.

As such, even though the current class size is larger than it used to be, the experience is just as good as ever, if not better. For less than the cost of doing a single contest, you will learn more about preparing winning entries than you can by trial and error during a whole season's worth of competitive cooking. Oh, and you'll have loads of fun while you're at it. To me, that's a great value!
