Swamp Boys Q School will be held June 29-30 in Clermont FL at Clerbrook RV Resort. Take the class that will help elevate your BBQ cooking skills to a new level. The list of graduates who go on to win their first Grand Championship grows steadily all across the country. Class size will be limited, don’t delay.

The typical Q School class is as follows:

  • Friday 1pm begin class
  • Detailed and in-depth discussions and demonstrations on the 4 main meats, from selections to injections
  • Prime Rib dinner around 7pm
  • Informal discussions on anything BBQ, put the big meats on the smokers
  • Saturday morning breakfast around 7:30
  • Ribs go on, then chicken
  • Final touches on meats, box building 2 ways per meat
  • Q & A until everyone is satisfied and there are no more questions
  • Usually around 2:30pm we wrap it up
  • Go home and practice!

The methods you’ll learn can be used with any style cooker, they’re not smoker specific. This class is great for everyone from the novice to the pro who needs that extra edge to move into upper ranks.
I have over 200 BBQ contests worth of experience to share, come and get it!

  1. Hey Rub , We are a team that competes in some of the flbbq contest. Me and the wife are interested in your class in clermont and have a question. First we wondered if there is still room, and second woulod we be required to bring a smoker?

    Thanks Mark

  2. Hi Mark,

    Yes there is still some room and no smokers are not required. Most do not bring them.
    Hope you can join us!


  3. I am interested in your cooking class. Is there a place for a judge who wants to upgrade his smoking knowledge and learn more about competition techniques. I have smoked for large groups over the years but never using the flavorings and pro methods. My desire is to move into cooking during the next two years once my equipment is upgraded and I feel my abilities are where they should be. Any feedback?

  4. Hi Jim,

    Of course there is a place for you! I love it when judges show interest in the other side and want to expand their knowledge base. This class is perfect for your situation and I hope you can join us.
