I am interested in the New Holland class as long as you're ok with someone who knows nothing about competition BBQ except from watching Pitmasters on TV. I'd definitely like to learn though!

You are exactly who we are looking for! It is first come first serve. If you would like to book it click the link and register.

The only thing you will need to bring is a chair and something to sleep in or on.

This will be the BEST $225 anyone could ever spend to learn competition BBQ!

I spent a weekend with Steve and 5-0 BBQ last year at the Smokin-on-the-Bay contest. Steve and his crew welcomed me into the group as if I was a life-long friend. All of the basics were covered including setup, the comp, and teardown. You will even learn the details of building an award winning box. All questions were encouraged and answered in detail. No question was too stupid or basic. Steve does not hide any techniques; in fact it is insisted that you get into the middle of the process and take part.

WARNING: This is NOT a stand in the back and watch what goes on opportunity. In order to learn, get in there and participate: wash dishes, wash smoker racks, etc.

You will be well rewarded by taking Steve up on his gracious opportunity. Plus you will get to taste some of the best Q in the mid-Atlantic.

That's what I'm hoping its going to be like! I just don't want to make myself look like too much of an idiot! And I'm positive I will fill my required quota of stupid questions!

Thanks for this opportunity Steve, I'm looking forward to getting my feet wet! And my hands too, contrary to what the Mrs might say, I can wash dishes

If there is anyone out there looking to learn the ropes of a comp from one of the best, this is your chance! Great opportunity and well worth the cost. Plus, Bluemont is a great setting for a comp.

Steve-

Is the Bluemont spot still open? If so I'm going to talk to the wife today and see if we can swing the trip to VA.

All, I am living proof that this class is money well spent! I did my first comp this past weekend and got a 5th in chicken and 10th overall against some tough competition. Steve's class was a major contributor to my success. If he offers them in the future, make sure you take advantage of this extremely valuable experience.

Thanks Lee. We only have one comp left for the year (New Holland) and we have a student for that event. Over the winter I will post for next years comps so people can sign up.

I am also thinking about doing this class at the store this Winter/Spring. This would be a comp class that everyone can afford. It would be geared to the beginner who needs the basics.

My goal with these classes are to get more people out cooking competition BBQ. It is great fun and for many it is just what they need to get away from the normal routine of work and life. The friends you meet in comp BBQ is amazing.
