Hi,
i was wondering where one can purchase a solid quality catering tent.

maybe something similar to the white tent pictured here?

i plan cooking with a santa maria style grill under the tent. i found this
http://www.ezupdirect.com/ezup-instant-shelters/exp2vp.php but it seems a little flimsy?



i plan on starting my business come spring/summer so now im prepping my list! thanks all

It looks lie an EZ-up but wouldnt plan on cooking UNDER it, flames and those tents don't mix......

yup, changed my mind quickly about that! maybe i can hack together a small tiny portable tent made of alluminum siding like material and use the ez up canopy for the payment booth. i plan on setting up shop at a flea market and here in nj, it is a must that all food being cooked outdoors are under some kind of ceiling for bird dropping protection.

Is it where food is being cooked or prepped ?? I know in Michigan it is only where it is prepped. The smoker/cooker does not need to be under a cover. I know things are different all over...

That would be strange, as the fire departments here typically require 10 feet from any tents etc.

Your right, thats fire code anywhere.

Especially an open style grill like he speaks of!
