Hear It from Our Students

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what Mike, one of our satisfied students, had to say about his experience:

Hi Chris,

I can’t thank you enough for openly sharing your knowledge at the recent BBQ class at the Heat Exchange. I had a great time learning about the “science” of great BBQ techniques. Your experience, knowledge, and love for BBQ were evident in the way you presented the information. It was both easy to understand and a complete joy to taste. I left the class with a full brain of new BBQ knowledge and a full stomach to back it up! I can’t wait to fire up the smoker and try out my new-found techniques. Looking forward to your next class!

Best Regards,
