Tanner got the first date and chose a traeger cooking class. At first I wasn't sure about it (I didn't SAY that though! Wasn't going to break any rules right off the bat). I just figured that he was the grilling/smoking man and I didn't know if I was going to like it. Wrong-o! Holy crap it was SO much fun! One of our friends ended up coming too and he's really cool. We learned how to master chicken thighs, ribs, brisket and pork butt, and got to try all of the above. We sat pretty close to the front (highly recommended if you ever go to one) and got seconds on everything so it really turned out to be a DELICIOUS dinner and super fascinating too. They had the fanciest of meats and she made steak with a compound butter that we got to eat as well which was INCREDIBLE. Seriously. I was just baffled by the flavors and taste of everything. Tanner had already been to a class by a different teacher but he loved it because he learned a lot of stuff still and the food...and company, duh! He is getting pretty good at all of those specialties (still need to do a pork butt though).
