Mark your calendar, make plans, call the sitter. Swamp Boys Q School is set for the first Saturday and Sunday in November.

Join me for this 2 day class, where you will learn the art and science of barbecue. This class is great for any level of experience – from the first time backyarder, to the seasoned competitor. I will share all of the techniques and tips I have learned over the past 18 years of competing, teaching you how to make the best food in the neighborhood or for the judges. Also I will be sharing recipes that have helped me win over 110 Championships.

We will cover both hot and fast, and low and slow styles. This techniques and methods class is NOT specific to any one cooker, it is adaptable for all.

Class will be held behind the Citrus Center Boys and Girls Club located at 2400 Havendale Blvd, Winter Haven FL. There will be a CCTV setup so everyone sees everything easily.

Class begins at noon on Saturday and goes until dinner time when you are treated to a smoked prime rib meal with all of the fixin’s. Afterwards you can shoot the breeze around the campfire, or retire for the night. RV’s and campers welcome with a $30 hookup fee (benefits Boys and Girls Club). Sunday morning we start back at 7:30 and there will be pastries and coffee. You will also get to sample chicken, ribs, pork, and brisket on Sunday – no one goes hungry! Class typically ends around 3-3:30pm or when all the questions have been answered.

To avoid missing out, register early. $500 includes everything and some swag. Verified teammates $400. Spouse $200. Each attendee must complete an application. Pay by check to the address on the application. Click the file for the application, print and mail in. Nov’22 App

Swamp Boys feels strongly about being a good community member. For nearly the past 5 years we have put the majority of our charity efforts into helping our local Boys & Girls Club here in Winter Haven. And it’s time to do it again.

I am soliciting donations for our Citrus Center Boys and Girls Club here in Winter Haven by giving away a seat to my BBQ Class, Swamp Boys Q School. My next class is being held Jan. 4-5, ’20, but the winner can redeem it for any class in the future. Click the PayPal link to make a donation of $25 or more for the Winter Haven Citrus Center Boys and Girls Clubs. Each $25 donation will earn you a chance in a drawing for a free seat in my class which is valued at $600. This will stay open until the donations hit $1,000 for the kids. I will have a live Facebook drawing (Rub Bagby) and notify the winner. I will give a check for 100% of money donated to our Citrus Center Boys and Girls Clubs, and Swamp Boys will cover the PayPal fees.

Goal Reached, thank you to all who donated!

You will also get to sample chicken, ribs, pork, and brisket on Sunday – no one goes hungry! Class typically ends around 3-3:30pm or when all the questions have been answered.
