It’s cutting board time!

We are pleased to announce a joint effort between Aporkalypse Now and Rockin Robyn’s for a limited run of disposable cutting boards for 2018. These boards have the rulers and boxes that you’re used to plus an additional 1 inch light grid across the entire board to make chicken trimming and burnt end fabricating easier. The boards are now boxed for easier storage and usage.


Pre orders are being taken now through February 8th. Price is $40 per 50.
Boards may be picked up starting January 27 at the Maryland Aporkalypse Now class and at the listed competitions and classes, including the MABA meeting on 2/10. You will have the option to select your pickup point when you place your order. Boards will also be available for pickup in Forest Hills Maryland and Springfield Virginia by appointment.

Boards ordered but not picked up by July 1st will be considered abandoned and will be resold unless prior arrangements are made.

    Comments from previews Classes

    If you are looking at doing a class then this is the one to take. Mike didn’t hold back with valuable tips, tricks and tools of the “trade”. We came away know it was money well spent.”

    “What I now tell you is absolutely true. This class taught by Michael Fay is a 100% tell all class. The hands on teaching trimming meats and cutting them for boxing. Plus much more, is unmatched by any other class at this price-point. We have taken 2 other classes by nationally known bbq teams and they don’t even come close to Aporkalypse Now BBQ. We are implementing the entire program for 2015 and expect to have numerous walks with a GC and/or RsvGC.”

    “If you are on any fence about taking a class, you will want to be in this one! Like Bill says, hands on for everything as far as prepping, injecting, slicing and dicing! Aside from learning how to cook great, the amount of tips and tricks will floor you! Recipes (and why certain products are used over others) are all there. Very methodical, and he maximizes the time spent in all areas. Be there, or Be square!!!”

    “The class was great, from the tell all information, to the nuggets of information, it was very informative. A tremendous value for a hands on, tell all class.”
