Default Lotta Bull Cooking Class - Lynchburg, TN

Anyone seen this or planning to attend? Looks like Randy and I will be hitching up my camper to drive to Lynchburg to attend. This is Randy's birthday present from his wife, Sandy.

Arlie, hope we can hook up with you while in the general area of Nashville.

http://www.lottabullbbq.com/Classes.htm

Join Mike Davis as he guides you through the proper techniques for preparing, cooking, and presenting your best product in this "hands on" session. This is a “technique only” class for the serious cooker, participating in competitions sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society. This class will not be about how to setup a kitchen or a wash station . . . you already know all that . . . and it is not a recipe class. It is "how to" class designed to give your barbeque an edge over the competition and that little something extra you've been missing. Following the schedule of a real cook-off, the class begins with preps on FRIDAY and ends with the turn-in on SATURDAY. You’ll learn the "how's" and "why's" behind Mike's award-winning cooking techniques and the secrets behind Debbie's presentation.
This class is about consistency, focusing on all 4 meats (Chicken, Pork Ribs, Pork, & Beef Brisket) at one time. Mike will do all of the cooking, leaving you more time to observe and practice the prep method once you've seen it, but the meat you prep will get cooked so as not to waste it.

I would love to go but that 500 bucks would eat in to my comp fund.

Todd did you say you were doing Sugar Creek? I sighed up for my first event of the year.

Yup. We'll be at Sugar Creek. I think Marshall is the week before. That will be our first comp.

The $500 is a lot of money. Both of our wives really pushed us to go... together. First Randy's and then mine. Randy turns the big 50 on March 2, so its a big gift for a big birthday.

I guess if I can't make Dr BBQ's class in Long Island... Mike Davis is the next best thing.

Hope you all have a good time..Don't know why someone would pay 500.00 for something like that but to each his own. We thought you said it was the year of the Plowboy after cooking with Rucker why do you need to go back to school??????

How bout Bar B Quau??? I know that we have been to alot of contest that the GC does not pay even close to 500.00. I didnt mean to start anything I was just thinking that it was a little high if you ask me. Plus who is to say that he is going to show you what he is doing now?? He might be showing you what he did 5 years ago...??..!!

$500 FOR A 2 day overnight class from the current KCBS team of the year sounds about right to me.

I kind of agree with Becky... or Mark... I took a class (although not of Mike's calibre) and was sort of disappointed. I already knew a lot of what was being taught. But I got to thinking that these things are probably a lot like someone sharing their recipes or secrets with you: you can get the info but you can't necessarily repeat the same results that person has gotten. I'm not knocking it either though, Todd. If you go down, have fun and ask the right questions, you're bound to learn a trick or two that might make the difference. Every little bit of education helps.

I don't see paying that kind of money for anyones cooking class. Your money would would be better spent taking Jeff's and mine cooking class on the trash cans. No heat in the garage and you supply the beer, what could be better than that.. You have to ask Wayne(MoKan Meatheads)Jeff in KC and Doorbusters about that. More fun than ........you got the idea.

I'd be willing to bet that everyone who stayed sober and paid attention at my classes over the years has easily gotten a good return on their investment. A check here for $300 and a couple $100s and you're even. I see guys spend thousands beating their head against the wall when they could go to one class and get on track. Maybe not for everyone but definitely good for a lot of cooks and the game as a whole.
