Darry, who is the target student for this class? From the description presented on your site it might be the rookie comp BBQ team. Is this correct, or is this class also valuable to established comp teams?
Thanks for hosting this comp BBQ class.

Mark

Hello Mark,

Vince and Alexa are in San Diego this weekend giving a seminar about "Taking your BBQ to the next Level", once they return home I'm sure they will address these concerns. I have spoken to quite a few experienced teams who will be attending.

Even if it is a basic introduction I am sure most teams would learn something to open their eyes. Too bad it is the same date as I have scheduled for the Las Vegas Sam's Club or I would be there.

First of all, Alexa and I would like to let you all know that we're very excited about the opportunity we have to teach this class and we would also like to thank Smitty and Eggs by the Bay for hosting the event.

"Fundamentals of Champioinship BBQ" will offer valuable information and insights about all aspects of competition barbeque and we believe it will be helpful for both rookie and veteran cooks alike. We say this based upon our own experience as students.

As some of you already know, we were students in a fundamental-style class given by Brent & Kim Walton in early 2007. The information we learned gave us a solid foundation and lead to us earning our first Reserve Grand Championship about 7 months later. Because we found so much value in their class, we decided to attend the same class when it was offered again in early 2008. The things we learned in the first hour of that class made us realize that while the information being presented was no different than that presented the previous year, our ability to comprehend the more subtle aspects of the material made the price of the class an exceptional value. Thanks to attending the class a second time, we went on to earn three Grand Championships in 2008. We repeated the class again in both 2009 and 2010, again seeing more and more valuable information as our experience level grew from year to year. Rhythm 'n QUE earned 7 GCs in 2009 and 8 more in 2010 and we attribute a fair share of that success to having "returned to our roots" and again establishing a firm grasp of the fundamentals of cooking championship barbeque.

We look forward to seeing you at the class!

We received our first 4 applications already and seems a few more are in the mail.

Lots of good feedback from prospective students, looks like this will fill up fast.

I have not attended a class but I think I may have to go to this one. I talked to Vince for an hour one time about the difference between the 18 wsm and the 22 wsm. This guy knows his cookers.The attention to detail that he gives to all aspects of cooking can not be discounted. I cooked next to RnQ in Idaho this past summer and saw what a fine oiled machine looks like. They won the GC and Vince let me taste some of there food and I realized how much work we have to do.

I'm amazed at the "out of state" drawing power that Rhythm 'n QUE has.

Just a reminder that the deadline for the “Early Bird” pricing for the upcoming Rhythm ‘n QUE Competition class is now a week away. Enrollment must be post marked by 3/16/12 to take advantage of the $345 class price. We’re approaching the halfway point on class enrollment. Hope you have the chance to attend and listen to these BBQ Champions as they try to help you and your BBQ skills.

Remember, folks, today (March 16) is the deadline to have your enrollment forms and payment postmarked so that you get the Early Bird discount for our class. And please, don't be fooled by the excellent price. This is a full on competition cooking class. We're just compressing things to make it all fit into a single day.

Thanks to all who have already signed up! We're looking forward to seeing you there!
