Serious competition cooks and backyard barbecue chefs will meet in a small town in Oklahoma on May 6 to learn the secrets of championship barbecue.

Twenty-five serious competition cooks and backyard barbecue chefs will convene in Ponca City, OK on May 6, to learn just how barbecue masters Ed "Fast Eddy" Maurin and Paul Schatte prepare meats worthy of championship status.

The intensive one-day hands-on event guides students through the maze of selecting cuts of meat, marinades, rubs, smoking techniques and smoking woods. Students will prepare meats and smoke them in the Fast Eddy’s by Cookshack pits provided by event sponsor Cookshack, Inc.

Ed "Fast Eddy" Maurin, inventor of the Fast Eddy’s by Cookshack line of cookers is a veteran contest winner with dozens of trophies to prove it. He invented Fast Eddy’s smokers and joined with Cookshack, Inc. in manufacturing and marketing the 100% wood burning ovens in late 2003.

Paul Schatte, General Manager of Head Country Food Products, Inc., is a 15-year veteran of professional competitions. Awards include Jack Daniel's World Champion 1994, Reserve Grand Champion American Royal Invitational 2004 and over 25 State Championships.

Hayward Harris, the Barbecue Doctor, known for his expertise with ribs, will be on hand to share his knowledge with the class.

Previous faculty includes Ray Lampe, well-known as Dr. BBQ on the contest circuit.

Cost for the class is $200 which can be applied to the purchase of a Fast Eddy’s smoker. To register, call 1-800-423-0698 and ask for Erin.

Cookshack, Inc. has manufactured fine quality smoker ovens for over 40 years. The Fast Eddy’s by Cookshack line was added to round out Cookshack’s product line in late 2003. Cookshack and Fast Eddy’s by Cookshack smokers are used by commercial operations, home users, and contest cooks.
