Default Taking a Class

Noticed in the Butcher downtime thread several comments about a class in the off season. The question is..whose class would you take and why?

Peller Envy, I Smell Smoke or Myron Mixon. I would love to take a class from any of these masters.

I'd like to take the Lotta Bull class - especially because he cooks on a stickburner

Myron tells me he also may have to cut back from his usual 3 classes each year if TLC decides to produce more episodes of "BBQ Pitmasters". If they do, he may not hold a February class in 2010.

(Of course I highly recommend the Jack's Old South class.)

I think Myron's would be nice.

Heck any of them that are regular competitors would be cool.

I'd be most interested in getting tips on preparing turn-in boxes. I'm comfortable with the cooking, but those boxes really get to me.

Also an excellent class but he cooks on a Jambo oven and uses matchlight charcoal. Doesn't really qualify as a stick burner. Add one stick every 60 -90 minutes and back on the couch for a nap. Told us we'd be better off getting some sleep and getting up at ??? well you'll have to take the class to learn that part.

If in the northeast I hear Steve's class is pretty good and southeast try Myron. Midwest - try Rod if they don't do combiend classes.

I thought he sold that pit and cooks on a Yoder now. Yoders and Horizons are pretty much the exact same pit - though I bet his is a bit tighter than mine ;)

I took Myron's class. Worth every penny!

If that's the case then I would be interested in going back east to an IQUE class. They happen to be the team that I wanted to be like when we started this competition cooking thing.
