Thanks to Thom, Brent & wife, Gene, Ric, Larry, and Dan.

My wife and I had a great time and learned more than I expected. All the participants were friendly and helpful, with a range of experience too.

I took so many notes I am trying to rewrite them in legible sentences so I don't lose all the valuable information I picked up.

My wife won a 1/2 half off prize for an upcoming competition and we are beyond scared. It's a little sooner than we expected. So much to learn in such a short time. Oh yeah, a name; it will probably take my wife that long just to decide on one

Again, a heartfelt thanks to all the instructors for their time and knowledge.

I want to thank every one who helped put this class on. I learned so much and I'm sure I will benefit from it all not only when I enter my first comp but when I'm just kick'n back with family and friends and producing some good BBQ. I also had a great time hanging out and meeting a great group of people and making new friends.

Thanks again Thom, Ric, Gene, Dan, Brent and Kim

To those I met at the BBQ class,

Thanks for putting up with me and whatever stupid questions a newbie like me comes up with. One of the things that has given me the addiction known as BBQ is the chance to meet good people, and this event was confirmation of that. I look forward to seeing you all again upon the field of BBQ battle, and hope we can still be friends after we beat you.

Just kidding, we've got a lot to learn, most of you have forgotten more than I'll ever learn, but we do intend on givin' you'all a good run for the money.

Thanks for the great time over the weekend, Don V, Team CrazyQ

Back home safely. So what did I learn this weekend? 1) Again, I see how wonderful and unique our BBQ community really is, what a great mix of individuals and all with a shared passion. 2) Don't drink three gallons of Rock Star and think you can sleep after. Thank you all for coming out this weekend I truly had a great time meeting you and look forward to seeing ya'll at other events. Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Thanks everyone.

My warmest regards to those who gave willing of their knowledge and wisdom. Also to the folks who worked to bring all this together. This was a very fun event and we ate pretty well for a couple days too.

Ric: Even with the slight glow, those ribs were righteous! Thanks for driving down. Next time...Red Bull.
Gene: Just when I thought I knew everything I needed to know about tri-tip, Shelly and I tried yours. Well done sir!
"Candy Apple" Dan: Can't wait to try your technique on my WSM.
Brent & Kim: Your demonstration has given me a whole new appreciation for presentation.

Here is a link to some pix I took.

Thank you very much!

Ditto To everything everybody has said above.  I had a great time, enjoyed providing my skill set to those in attendance, the venue and class structure were perfect.  Especially thanks to Brent & Kim Walton for providing the class structure through all entr้es that you are so good at doing in your own class.  And, Thom Emery for putting it all together.
