Sounds like a rip off to me , to learn true BBQ you aint gonna get it done by reading a book , its a hands on kinda thing . I have been doing Backyard BQ all my life and am still learning. Save your money go down to were Ray Lempe is teaching , while I have not been to one yet , your money and time and stomach would benefit more.

There are a number of great BBQ books out there. If you are going to spend the money on a class, I would go attend the classes that are being taught by the guys who are out on the circuit winning!

PS...I don't read!

Re: BBQ School

I should explain a few things if somebody wants to shell out bucks for a book/cd class on BBQ go for it . Me I am old fashioned I think BBQ is something you learn by doing by hand . I too have BBQ books do they give me ideas heck yea they do, but in the end there is nothing like hands on experience in this field . For me personally I would rather spend that money on one of the many courses offered by the competiton pros that wil help me improve not only my backyard fixins but my competiton turn ins as well. We all cant be the same way, different strokes for different folks . What ever works for you then do it.

Just something to throw out there in the form of an idea....

I wonder if one of the "pros" that give classes would put one on for the gang here. Maby if we got enough interested, we could do a private type weekend class somewhere...Might be a nice thing for the fall after the comp season is over...
