You forgot...

Dr BBQ - Ray Lampe
Fast Eddy/Head Country
Music City Pig Pals
Chris Lilly

I'd need multiple choice... I recommend both Lotta Bull & Rod Gray. I'd like to do a Dr BBQ class sometime. I think the Fast Eddy class at Cookshack may be next on my list.

Several of us LIFO's had the opportunity to take a class with Dr. BBQ, aka Ray Lampe earlier this year.
I vote for OTHER and am pleased to add Ray to the list.

I've taken classes from the following individuals and would recommend any and or all of them:

1. Bill and Barbara Milroy aka Texas Rib Rangers
2. Myron Mixon
3. Fast Eddy Maurin and Paul Schatte
4. Mike Davis
5. Chris Lilly

I'm looking forward to taking a class from Rod Gray and Johnny Trigg next year.

I've picked up something different from all of them that I use in every contest. All were great classes and good people.

I know that the ‘Bullsheet’ lists out a number of classes. Is there anywhere else we should look?

LIFO's?

dontcha mean NYFO'S

Had a good time at Ray's very informative class. My only complaint with it was seeing as it was a Brethren event it came very close to just becoming one big party. I will not for the record divulge if I was for or against it, but it did seem to bother some folks.

The ones I listed were off of KCBS's website, without looking I'm guessing they are the same.

Yes Sean, we were NYFO's and I stand corrected.
Personally, I had a great time (except for the frigid cold) and appreciated the chance to learn from and practice with a true professional.

Default Cooking Class Follow Up

Did not want to high jack a previous thread but did want to ask a question or two regarding cooking classes. Here goes.

I have not taken any of the classes, but for those that have, a few questions

1. Have you seen your scores go up in comps, or have you taken more walks due to the class.
2. Overall how do you feel that the classes have helped?
3. How do you measure what you have gotten from these classes.
4. What other quantifiable ways have these classes helped?

I understand that the I Smell Smoke class is very worthwhile. Hope to take it someday.
