Myron Mixon\'s Cooking School (pic heavy)

Just wanted to share some pictures from Myron Mixon's cooking school. It really was fun and VERY informative. Between Del and I we have 50 pages of notes Instead of going through all the trial and error that people go through we figured why not learn from the winningest guy in BBQ. He has proven time and time again he is the one to beat. We found out he is a very different person when he's not in front of a camera.

A special thanks to Bobby Cresap and Charlie who were there to assist with the class. IThey gave us some pointers on how you would do things a little differently cooking on an egg. It was great to meet them and we sure had a lot of fun and laughs.

Also, thanks to Poppasam & Diane who told about this class way before the TLC Pitmaster's show. Myron has been doing the classes for 4 yrs. and right now his next 3 classes are booked to capacity.

We couldn't believe how much we learned in one weekend. Myron is an extremely talented and gifted instructor. His class exceded all of our expectations.He lays it all out on the line to include recipes, cooking methods, techniques, KCBS, MBN, MIN, box building and much, much more.

We ended a great weekend with a group of the Georgia eggers at a great Mexican restaurant. It sure was great to see everyone. :)

Here are some pictures.

The first 2 people I met at the class were Bobby Cresap and Charlie. They both did a great job helping Myron with the class.


We checked in and were treated to a catfish dinner. It was delicious! As you can see nothing was left but the bones.


Bobby Cresap


The whole hog. This 180 lb guy got 5 gals of injection. I couldn't believe it.


Myron's assistant Nick helping with the injection.


Myron and I


The hog all foiled and ready to go in the cooker.


The Mixon family


Brisket trimming


We learned how to make Myron's cupcake chicken



These were some of our classmates. What a bunch!!




The whole hog was the highlight of the class. It was to die for.


Check out the bacon


A little bling!! He's got 3 of these World Championship rings.





After tasting his brisket I can see why it's his strongest category.

    Anne, thanks for sharing, very impressive and looks like you had a great time! Question on the ribs: did he cover the pans and put them back in the cooker?

  • reelgemreelgem Posts: 4,256
    Thanks Kenny, if you ever get the chance I would highly recommend it.

    Excellent report, Anne, and great pics.
  • reelgemreelgem Posts: 4,256
    Yes, he did. And let me tell you they were the BEST ribs I've ever had in my life. Not even close to any others.

    Thx for the pics Anne.

  • reelgemreelgem Posts: 4,256
    I love ya Pat, but I'm kind of glad you weren't there. We would've needed to of those 180lb hogs. :)
  • reelgemreelgem Posts: 4,256
    It was very intense, we all did party at the end of the day though.
  • reelgemreelgem Posts: 4,256
    It was hard to do a post that could cover 3 days and all the information we took in. Tried to put as much in as possible. Thanks!
  • We should look at doing one together!! I could use the lessons in cooking the party part I have down pat!! :laugh: ;) :)
  • reelgemreelgem Posts: 4,256
    It really would be fun to get a group together and all do a cooking class. We'll have to look into that.

    We are glad you had such a great time. Talked to Bryan and he felt the same as you on what he got from the class. As you stated Myron is one great guy and a very good instructor. We enjoyed visiting with both of you Sunday and Monday even though we didn't make the class. We, along with Bobby,Charlie, and a couple more Egg Teams plan to start the year off next weekend with a contest in Gainesville Ga. Looking forward to seeing you later in the year. Have fun in Florida next week.

    Brian and Trey were so much fun Sam!! We hope to meet up with them again somewhere. We're trying to talk them into going to Eggtoberfest. That would be fun!!
  • reelgemreelgem Posts: 4,256
    You're welcome. Glad you enjoyed the post. :)

    I really want to talk to you about OKC. Have Del call me.
  • reelgemreelgem Posts: 4,256
    Del would rather talk to you face to face. He's really looking forward to it! He'll be looking you up.

  • Wow, very cool Anne. Nice pictures and I appreciate you posting them. I get such a bad image of Myron from the TV show but see many post in here what a great guy he is. Hope to take the same course one of these days.

    Keep em coming,

    I'm not likely to cook a whole hog anytime during this assignment on Planet Earth but I might cook some ribs one of these days. Sounds like his ribs were good.

    After taking the class does that mean you can write a book titled, "Everything I Learned In Myron Mixon's Cooking School" or did you have to take a blood oath not to disclose all his secrets? LOL

    Looking forward to tasting some of your future cooks.
