Once again, Yamaha had us setup to stay in Camp-N-Style campers, and while the Camp Chef crew weren’t able to attend this year’s event, they sent down several of their outdoors grills, along with their new Artisan Pizza Oven accessory, which allowed us to cook our own pizzas, and they were awesome.
