I did not take this class but my buddy did. He said it was all about sauces and rubs. Just buy the book, that is what I did. It gives you the basics and that is a good thing.

Refer to tony above. If what you're looking for is a sauce & rub school, then you
probably have the right one. If you're looking to learn how to cook competition
BBQ, this is probably not the correct class.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

buy the book. Much better Classes available. He may have toned his attitude now there is competition but when I took it he was quite arrogant. Not worth dragging my lang 300 miles for sure.

I got the book last year and it is full of more info than I would think you would get from any 2 day class.

Be Safe

So you have to tow your grill so he can show you how to use it?

No. I don't know about now but when I took the course it was given near Dallas and everyone was encouraged to bring their pit so you could cook similar to contest conditions receiving tips from the master.

We went and had a great time. It was worth the money for us, because he reinforced the direction we wanted to go. He is quite a character!

We got a copy of the cookbook as part of the entrance fee! He's won all the big ones, so you can learn something. And have a good time.
