Picked up my new Cambro 300 yesterday. I've wanted one of these for a long time. I've been cruising Craigslist and Ebay for some time looking for a used one, but the right offer never popped up. It turns out it was less to buy it at Restaurant Depot than new from one of those Ebay "discounters" anyway. And new is always better.
I love BBQ toys. I looked long and hard at the larger Cambro 400 model, but in the end I felt it was just too large for me.
Tomorrow, I'll be up at the New England Barbecue Society cooking school. It's being held at the Maynard Rod and Gun Club in Maynard, Massachusetts. It's a two day class, but I will only be up there Saturday. I'm doing a short talk about competition BBQ on the Internet. I do have some insight here, as before I first competed I learned a ton about competition BBQ online. In fact, the first contest I cooked was the first contest I had ever even been at. We took 3rd place out of 21 teams at that event, and it wasn't luck, it was because I had absorbed so much about competing online.
