"This is a fun and informative class. (Ray) makes it simple and discusses options for equipment. Using his methods, recipes and informative tips will help you master authentic BBQ. I followed his methods and recipes exactly to make ribs for 40 people. Comments ranged from "best I have ever eaten" to "haven't had ribs this good since I have been in this little place in the South." However, the comment I heard the most was: "More, please"!"
