View Full Version : First Time Vending

We participated in a small local competition on Saturday. There were only 7 teams. We placed 3rd in pork and 1st in ribs. It was also our first time vending. We cooked 9 butts (our capacity while leaving room for comp meats) and sold them all by 4 oíclock in an absolute downpour. We even had one lady just mad that we had run out of meat. After turn in time we even sold every last scrap of the leftover comp meats. Iím not sure why there were so many people out buying BBQ in a monsoon but Iím thankful! Some of them were friends and family but the vast majority of customers were people weíve never met before. Iím guessing this is fairly unusual and we shouldnít expect this kind of response every time.

Very unusual. Rain usually means you lose your shirt in vending.
