Matt, I have taken a couple different classes and it is interesting to see how different people cook and what they use. I had some products used in the past that I can't find anymore so on that note, it is nice to know what I can sub, etc.

I think if you have an opportunity to get some hands on with someone like Kelly, Rod, Scottie, Myron, Todd/David, etc it is worth it just from a general knowledge point of view. The price is pretty good here too. I have signed up to be a judge at days end.

I took the class a couple of years ago here in Great Bend. I don't compete so I couldn't tell you it helped me there but there was a lot of information provided that helped me cook better at home. I think you will enjoy it, Kelly is a great guy with a dry sense of humor. Just have fun!

I have not taken the class, but I've sampled some of his stuff and dined in his restaurant. I suspect you'd take something away that would be valuable.

How do you get into judge? I may be interested in that.

Kelly's class is on my list - especially since we use the same model of smoker for chicken. I can't make the one in Jesup this weekend, but I'm hoping for a winter/spring date in or near KC.

We do a one day class where we supply the brisket, butt, ribs, and chicken for you to cook on your cooker that you bring (if you have one). We start at 7 am by showing you how we prep briskets and hope for you to have them on by 8:00 am, then butts etc...

We talk about and work on competition bbq throughout the day and provide boxes and greens for you to do boxes at the end of the day. Then you get to present your meat offerings to judges and watch them judge, listen to their comments, and ask them questions. Judging should be over by 8 or 9 pm.

Yup its a long day, but we cover it all, and you will have lots of good cooks in the class to learn from as well

You can go to www.4legsupbbq.com and click on the BBQ Classes link on the chalkboard on the home page for more information.
