Here is what Gary K said about the class:

 

"Many folks have posted on here about how good Eric Burkhart's class is and recommended it. We just finished up taking Eric's class over the weekend and I wanted to share with you guys about our experience. (We have taken two other classes to date and they both were very good classes; the first one was Bob Snelson's class and the second was Rod Gray's class). Eric's class stands out.

At the top of the list (for me) is the atmosphere. It wasn't a class - it was an experience. From the time we got there to the time we left, it was like a different world; it was fun, it was informal, it was friendly but most importantly it was informative. As the old saying goes, it was like drinking from a fire hose. One of my thoughts driving the long trip back home was that I couldn't believe we've been cooking BBQ for two and a half years and yet learn so much in 24 hours. It was so different from what we have been doing that it was like starting over. And that's what we wanted - something different. We were tired of the same results so we knew we needed to do something else.

The other thing I was impressed with was the amount of help and support that Eric and Robin had at that class from people who had taken the class before and were there just to 'hang out'. I could tell how much they respected and liked the Burkharts - and that speaks volumes.

Yes they feed you breakfast and they feed you supper and they feed you snacks (I gained two pounds) but so do the other classes. They feed you information that you can USE; what they are doing now - today - that is working for them. I just can't say enough about how good this experience has been for Tammy and I.

I have more to share but this post is long enough. Yes it is affordably priced and yes it is good - but it is sooo much more than that! We can't say thank you enough to Eric and Robin!"
