Comments on the Texas BBQ Forum about March 6th and 7th, 2010
Hi Konrad, it was a real pleasure to meet you and take your class. Last weekend my wife bought me a new 22" WSM and I really love it. On Sunday I cooked up a great brisket, some baby backs and a slab of spare ribs. My son comes over every Sunday for dinner and this time he said in all the years I have made barbeque this was the first time that it tasted like it was made in a restaraunt. For him that is a real compliment! I sent him home with 1/2 a brisket and most of the ribs and 1/2 of your lemon cake.
Thanks again, I got way more than my money's worth.

Just wanted to drop a little note thanking you for a very informative class. I learned much and can't wait to put this knowledge to work.

The class was a real
eye-opener. I already have some of the meat prepped for this weekend,
incorporating many of the new things learned on March 6th. Let's hope I
got the good brisket I think I did!

I came to Konrad's class a very average backyard griller with no experience using a smoker. Konrad was not only very knowledgeable in his class he was also very approachable and answered any question without making you feel bad about how amateur it was. In the 6 weeks since the class I've fed 150 people for Thanksgiving and Christmas and took some to work and neighbors. Everyone has given great complements and I have even received quite a few "best I've ever had" complements. This class basically escalated me through what would take most people years of hard knocks BBQ to learn on their own in a very short period of time. Konrad even helped me in an e-mail with a question weeks after the class. He's very good people.

Wondering if you plan on offering a class this year in Austin, TX ?
I attended your class two years ago. Learned a ton, and would like to get a refresher and bring along a friend or two.

Personal tribute by Pitmaster Konrad Haskins to Texas BBQ.
This "Sky Full of Bacon" Video Blog was shot shortly before Robert (Bobby) Louis Mueller passed away the restaurant is now run by his son. Also in this video is another Texas legend and BBQ restaurant owner Vencil Mares. The The two legendary barbecue restaurants mentioned in Taylor Texas are the Taylor Cafe and Louie Mueller Barbecue
Konrad brought over 30 years of cooking experience to his new found passion of competition. He was an overnight success going from his first contest to winning his first qualifier in 16 weeks in 2002. Winning the Montana state championship kot Teddy Bear's BBQ invited to the American Royal Invitational and The Jack Daniel's. At the American Royal Invitation we we cooked next to Texas Legend Harley Goerlitz. In the six invitationals we've qualified for we've cooked next to the likes of Johnie Trig (Smoking Triggers), James and Lola Rice (USA Smoke), Mike Davis (Lotta Bull), Bill Millroy (Texas Rib Rangers) and Ain't Prime to name a few.
Konrad's full on exposure to Texas BBQ was as a result of winning the Pacific Northwests BBQ associations Best New Cook of 2002 award. The prize was an all expense paid trip to Houston for a BBQ class taught by Jams and Lola Rice of USA Smoke BBQ team from Hico Texas. Dinner the first night of the Class was Fajitas cook by Konrad and Guy Fieri before he became a TV star.
All but the Dallas class picture below are from a memorable 2006 road trip from Houston to Austin and back. It was the first class we taught in Texas and my first time visiting the original Salt Lick BBQ restaurant in Driftwood Texas.
We own all of these and consider them great reading and viewing. Legends of Texas Barbecue Cookbook by Robb Walsh is a must read for the history of Texas barbecue. As a competition cook we know the pages are filled with nuggets of winning advice. Barbecue: A Texas Love Story is a DVD worth watching about the great Texas BBQ restaurants. The LBJ Cookbook and Pit Pot and Skillet are both out of print. LBJ is long on history and short on recipes but the few in there are good. Pit, Pot and Skillet is full of recipes.
