Sounds interesting.
I'll bet Steven could make a great curriculum. Between his books, this site, and the TV show my grilling has improved beyond measure.

Hey Info, how many posts till we get diplomas?

Dunno but Steve's hardback versions of his books are worth the money. Best BBQ education I ever got was with Steve's books.

I agree 100% about Steve's books. In fact, that's what started this obsession. It's the one hobby of mine that the wife doesn't complain about because she benefits from it. However, I was told that she and my family were thinking about purchasing this for me as a gift. I would much rather go to BBQ University, but there is a SUBSTANTIAL price difference. So I was asking to determine whether or not it would be a waste or still be of some benefit.

Thanks!

I will be sure to let you know how everything goes. It sounds as though it will be an Christmas gift, so I won't be able to give a review until next year sometime.

At the very least, it will give me an excuse to fire up the grills even more frequently for class material. One thing that is kind of neat is that according to the program, you need to appoint a mentor to grade your food. With this in mind, I will be able to meet a local pit master and pick his brain. Shouldn't be a problem since I'm not opening a restaraunt that would compete with him/her......yet. :P
