June 8, 9 and 10, I will be teaching Traditional Q Cook School hosted by Myron Mixon Smokers and held at our headquarters in Waterford, located on the Connecticut shoreline. I’ll be covering the selection and preparation of the four main proteins (brisket, pork butt, ribs, and chicken), a sampling of sauces, rubs and injections, cook times, and temperatures, including 1 or 2 classic sides and desserts to make you the King of the Cul De Sac.
