Just got home from Myron Mixon's BBQ school this past weekend. It was a blast! Class started on Friday night at his house - basically a meet and greet - with good southern fried chicken, hush puppies, and slaw. On Saturday we focused on prepping whole hog, wagyu briskets, pork butts, chicken, and ribs. Myron would share some knowledge, show the technique, and then send us off to try it out.
His team cooked all the meats (about 1,000 lbs of it) on Saturday night and Sunday we ate it all. I probably gained 5 pounds over the weekend but it was totally worth it.
One of the highlights for me, besides meeting Myron, was getting to chat with his right hand man TJ. TJ is an old timer that has probably forgotten more about BBQ than I know.
Bottom line - fun experience, learned a lot, and would recommend it to any of my Egghead friends.
