    Default First time vending!

    Mike and i have decided to expand our horizons a bit, we've been selling our BBQ supplies at a couple local farmers markets and have noticed a call for some food!

    Applied for a TFP (temp food permit) on Monday, cooked butts and ribs on Friday (nice having that comm. kitchen) and set up EARLY Sunday morning.
    Had meat back up to temp by 7:30, inspector walked thru at 7:45, passed with flying colors and were serving by 9 am!

    Our goal was to sell 50 PP sandwiches, 6 slabs of ribs and as many combos (chips and drink) as we could by 2 pm.

    Ended up selling 42 sammies (many combos) and all the ribs by 1:00 and that was a SLOW day as far as people coming by the market!

    Handed out lots of cards and even made a few sauce sales!

    What a great experience! Planning on the next 3 weekends for a little larger crowd.

    Thanks for all the help from this forum! Did i already say i love my job!

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    That is great Bubba,
    There is something so satisfying about watching people enjoy your food.And to make a little money doing it doesn't hurt either!
    Sounds like you will have some good exposure.

    It really does, now if i could do it more often.....

    Unfortunately, winter will be setting in and this will probably come to a halt, although i have found a few indoor mkts that i might be able to work at!

    Either that, or find a restaurant location. Get one out on the highway where the snowmobilers can stop in for Q and beers.

    How long would it take the smoker to fall in if you set up by the ice fishermen?
