NCBS BBQ Boot Camp – Picture’s Worth 1,000 Words

I spent the weekend helping out at the NC Barbecue Society’s BBQ Boot Camp at Sugar Mountain Resort.  I served as a glorified roadie by setting up tents, carrying trays of food, picking up trash, and similarly glamorous jobs.  Oh, and I had plenty of time to listen in on the classes and to eat and drink more than my share.  It was a lot of fun and a great way to connect with fellow barbecue nerds.  A few pictures of the event are below.
