Superb, crammed with good advice and demonstrations. Acid test is whether or not you use what you've learned and I'm pleased to report I have. Ed and Em were great and happy to share in detail both some great back-yard BBQ tips as well as some detailed competition guidance. The opportunity to try the food being cooked was great, if relentless! I still aspire to the brisket and burnt-ends, awesome!

The detail of information on processes, meat cuts, rubs & sauces was excellent. There wasn't anything I didn't like about the class.
