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?
You also might want to do your homework on what type of cookers the "Teachers" have cooked on. You might get more for your buck. There are a number of them that cook on different types of cookers. Just because they use 1 type for competition doesn't mean that is the only type they have knowledge on.

Butcher, you need to do a class at your place in November since you will not be making the trip to MI. I know of one person who would be there.

Thanks,

Fred
David's still coming to Michigan, cant wait to meet him and Todd in person finally!

Still a few seats for this class.

My wife said she wants to take a class so I can't wait to get her signed up for one. Maybe she will even let me tag along!?!

It would be nice to know who is planning on teaching a class in the winter when cabin fever starts setting in. Anyone have anything on the books?

It's not the dead of winter, but Nov. 5-6 down here in FL I'm giving one.

We have talked about your class - the donation to the foundation alone makes it worth it. However, that little wink suggests that you may try putting the moves on her, and to be honest I think she may be looking for a better offer. Do you promise to be on your best behavior?

Exactly what David said. We were forced to make a decision on this class about a week ago: cancel or scale back. We put it out to the folks signed up and they would rather have one cook versus no class at all. So we decided that I'd continue forward and hope for more people at a $250 rate. We are refunding the difference to those already signed up. NOTE: $250 is a value for these types of comp courses as most of you know. If you are interested, I'd jump before inflation kicks in.

David is coming to Detroit with me. Everyone should know that this will probably be the last time that David and I teach together. David's family has a lot of irons in the fire and he can't do it all. Unless something special comes up, this will be the only Plowboys/Butchers class planned. Detroit has good numbers and we are 100% committed to coming for that class.

We also have good numbers for the Smoke on Wheels/Plowboys class in New York State on Oct 30. That class is a go for sure.

Look for a class announcement coming for Pacific NW and Cali with Big Poppa Smokers. Gotta get through a couple of things this week (contest, catering, Scouts, and kid's grilling class) and then work on details for Jan-Feb 2011.

Scottie - When you get your next class on the books, I want a seat. As with Chris Hart's (iQue) class this last weekend, any chance to watch a master perform his craft can't be missed.

How about a March class in the Mid-Atlantic region?

So you are saying that you are cheaper and easier?


*** Usually the way I like my women...


BTW I do have a couple of irons in the fire for another class/fundraiser or two.
