I promise to stop and pay the tolls if I come back down :)

Farking toll booths !

Great class for a great cause

Great thread.

Last year I took the class that Rod and Johnny were doing. They shared it all, including ingredients. More than the ingredient lists I came home with an understanding of how they worked, and what they were trying to accomplish. It got me out of a rut, and allowed me to start looking at things with an open mind. I hadn't realized that I'd been in a rut, until I sat there for a couple of hours. If they do future classes together or seperately, I'd highly recommend it.

I've never taken Dr. BBQ's class but spent a couple of days with him over the last couple of years and Ray is one of the best communicators I've ever met! With his schedule these days, I don't know that he has the time to do classes, but I'd take one if I could make it. If you ask Ray a question, you will get his honest and direct answer. That's worth the price of admission.

Plowboys, and Butchers BBQ... I've cooked with Todd a couple of times in the last year. I've cooked next to David w/Todd. Todd is a really thoughtful guy, that has developed products that he uses, just as David has. Both have been successful. When either of them talks, I'll listen!

Scottie is the next guy on my list of classes I want to take. The cause his classes support is reason enough. His experience and success don't hurt either! If I can get away, I'm there!

When any of those guys talk, it's in your interest to listen whether you pay a fee or not. WHY they do the things they do, is just as important as WHAT they do.

I have only taken one class and that was Scotties class. If you are looking for technique and seasonings he does both in his class. My first contest after the class I was 10th in pork and 6th in brisket. I had only received one call in pork before his class after cooking comps for 2 years (about 10 contest).
Highly recommended

If you cook with a stickburner at high temps them maybe a class taught by Mike Davis or Myron Mixon would be better for you. In addition some classes give you a look into the complete cooking process (rubs, injections and everything else). Some will only give you help on techniques - but they won't give you specific help on flavors etc.

So, what do you need/expect to learn?

I really appreciate everyone's responses. I didn't realize what I would be starting. I have had a hard time finding classes posted on the internet. Is it possible to start a "sticky" of comp classes and all of you offering them post when and where with a link? It would be nice to have one stop shopping for classes. I don't know how that works, maybe a moderator can set up a topic in the "sticky" section interested parties could post to and check. Thanks again.

Great suggestion! Done.

My only request is that the contributions to that thread be limited to dates, locations, and brief reviews after someone has taken the class. That will make the info on upcoming classes easier to find. After a class has been held the date and location info will be deleted. The reviews will remain to allow people to gather info and decide whether that class is for them or not, in the future.

I took Paul Kirk's class a few years back and it was an eye opener...Paul was very thorough in his descriptions of HOW to prep and HOW to cook good BBQ. We used his rubs for the pork butts and briskets but were allowed to create our own for the chicken and ribs...it was interesting how many different rubs were concocted that day...some good...some not so good. The main thing I took away was the basics...fire...prep...smoke.

I have since developed my own style of cooking that incorporates several styles...Paul's for the basics...Ray Lampe for technique...Adam Perry Lang for creativity...and swamprb (Brian Moriarty) for competition...(cooking for the judges and presentation).

I am very interested in taking Todd and David's class this November to help me out on the catering side as well as to get an idea of competition cooking on a national level...plus I'm thinking of crossing over to the dark side and investing in an FEC100...

I think any class that a seasoned pit master is giving will help the beginner...once you know which direction you want to go you can then choose that style to follow...or create your own...good luck with your decision.
