View Full Version : Vending @ NKC

02-18-2011, 08:13 PM
We are doing our first vending gig outside the comforts of our small hometown. We are also going to be competing so that will add to the stress. It is going to be the weekend of the Snake Saturday Parade so there is a large draw to the area.

The menu we tentatively have is ribs, chopped brisket, pulled pork, "pig trough" (bed of frito's, pulled pork, beans, nacho cheese, jalapenos in a boat), beans and slaw. My question is I usually never vend chicken even at home. Is it a must at large events?

We will be selling Friday and Saturday. I am not expecting a huge crowd on Friday. I am going to start with enough pork for 150 sammies, brisket for 150 sammies, buying 2 cases of ribs. I will have more on hand if we do good on Friday. How do you guys figure how much to cook? What do you do with leftovers? What if you under-calculate? I can always vend the next day in our hometown.

Thanks Tyler
