Now you get the opportunity to experience and learn the secrets of their success.

These two-day classes include every detail that have helped Joe and Ryan to be successful, including procurement, preparation, cooking, and presentation. Both will provide complete instructions regarding on their contest preparations, while each will provide hands-on demonstrations of their best two categories—Joe will do pork and ribs, and Ryan will demonstrate chicken and brisket.
