Swamp Boys Q School is a two day Techniques Class that I offer. We cover everything you need to know to be successful in BBQ competitions, or if you’re not into that, how to be the best barbecuer in your neighborhood! The class is appropriate for all skill levels as we start from the bottom and work up. The newer people will learn tried and true techniques that will have them smoking up the best BBQ of their lives and being the hit of the block parties. The competition guys and gals will learn the proven techniques, tips and tricks that I use to put myself in the best position to win contests. Some you may have seen, others I know you’ve never seen! Every winning technique and tip I know is shared in class, nothing is held back.

There are over 100 satisfied Q School “alumni”, many who have gone on to win multiple Grand Championships, Reserve Grand Championships, and category wins. And not to mention the 10’s of thousands of dollars won! The price of the class is $500 which is less than the cost of one contest. Most who have consistently applied the skills learned have recouped their investment in just a few contests. Some have tripled their investment in the very next contest, and some have even paid themselves back by simply winning the first category after the class! Stop wasting time and money and come learn what it takes to win.

The class will be held on the lakefront of beautiful Lake Cannon in Winter Haven FL. The site is the location of the nationally recognized Smoke on the Water professional BBQ contest which is sanctioned by the Florida BBQ Association. The class is scheduled for the weekend after the contest. There will be complimentary 30amp hookups for those wanting to stay at the lakefront. As an option I will be securing a block of motel rooms nearby as well.

  1. I really want to take your class but unfortunately I will be traveling on business for the one scheduled for Feb. If you could let me know when the next one might be, I would really appreciate it.
