Bichelmeyer meats hosted another Pitmasters class in Kansas City, Kansas last Saturday. The Midwest was well represented by eager participants from Colorado, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Texas, and Wyoming. I really enjoyed this group of participants. They were both high spirited and inquiring. Thank you all for making the class exciting for me!
