OK, this is going to get a lot of interest and opinions (both ways). Can't wait to hear a review.

To be honest, I'm not sure what could be in that class that isn't already in his books, his PBS show, and YouTube videos. He doesn't exactly use secret spice mixes or secret sauces.

Good point. I just watched the 2 min video. He said he will have more time to go into detail but all of his videos and books are already pretty detailed like you said.

I watched the promo and was thinking the same. Brisket trimming and working the temp up in increments caught my attention. I have both his books already.

Yeah the promo seemed to have some additional "steps" that I have not seen in any of the books / PBS videos, but I'm still skeptical about how much ADDITIONAL information is being offered. I do enjoy all his videos - very personable and humble based on what he has built.

Setting cost aside, I bet this would be pretty interesting to watch. I love listening to Aaron talk about BBQ.

I had originally written this off assuming most or all of it would be in his YouTube videos but I am interested. Don't know if I will spend $90 on it bit it sounds interesting.

I just signed up and did thev$180 because I like watching Gordon Ramsay as well. Going to watch the Franklin vids tonight and will let everyone know.

I'd written: ONLY $90? To spend that type of time with some of the guys around here you're looking at $750 or more... Mind you, his is a bit streamlined, but I'm sure it's well worth every penny. One thing you can do live that you can't do with a video is ask questions... If I were anywhere close, I'd be there. This guy knows his stuff!


Damn it. Looks like it's all video as well. Hmmmm..... I'm not so sure. There are plenty of free vids that show most all of this by various people if you're wanting to learn... Nope; not for me.

Just noticed that he said he is trying to make this class as similar to how he trains his employees as he can. Also includes grilling.

Worth it if you do the 180 plan and enjoy the other masterclass courses. I really enjoy the Thomas Keller, Wolfgang Puck and Gordon _Ramsay classes
