      Well, Myron Mixon is a recommendation. I took his two-day-class, and he's good. Way friendlier and more humble in real life than he appears on TV. And he knows bbq. There are probably plenty other good teachers, let's see what the collective wisdom of the Pit will bring.

      I'm sure most cities have BBQ guru's that run classes from time to time but hitting on a date is the hard part.
      The big daddy would be the BBQ camp Texas A&M puts on yearly but the waiting list to go is 10 miles long. With Covid that may be a wash too.
      I'd turn him on to Youtube, that's my go to if I can't get a response on this site and that's never happened,
      someone always steps up to help.
      Youtube is theory more than practical experience but it is a very helpful blueprint .

          I've read good things about the classes Mike Mills and his daughter put on.

              I know a few people that have been to and enjoyed either Harry Soo's bbq class (California) or Tuffy Stone's (Virginia) class.

              No telling tho when they'll schedule more classes due to Covid19.

              I know a few people that have found that Aaron Franklin's Masterclass class was well worth the money and has a lot more detail than his book or videos on YouTube. That is something your client could do now - https://www.masterclass.com/classes/...exas-style-bbq

                +1 on Aaron. His fire management episode is great. Though you only really get his central Texas style presented.

              Not sure about something that would work for a schedule like that. I know several universities have several day BBQ camps in the summer (probably not this year, but...). I attended the NC State one a couple of summers ago, and I know Texas A&M has one as well, probably others. They tend to have waiting lists since they're only once a summer.

              Grillbillies in the Raleigh area has some well regarded classes going on regularly, although I haven't been to one yet. https://www.grillbilliesbarbecue.com...f-2018-classes

                How much is he willing to spend? I'll teach him how to burn meat the North American way!

                  Anyone have resources on bbq classes that are for people NOT interested in competition BBQ, but just good ol backyard, might do some catering now and then type? I am intrigued by many of the suggestions above, but besides Myron Mixon's class that talks about how he discusses holding at restaurants, etc., others all seem to be geared toward competition. I've taken many courses at Weber Grill Academy and those have been great for this purpose. Maybe Mike Mills class since they mainly run a restaurant?

                    I did the BBQ Stars video classes which had some competition information but was a really good course for improving for home cooks. I really enjoyed one of Harry Soo’s about building flavors. Meathead was one of the instructors and could give you more information about it I’m sure.
