View Full Version : Selling Frozen BBQ

10-16-2010, 08:22 AM
Hey guys,
have an idea that I would love to have your input on. During the slow months I plan to do alot of arts and craft shows selling my sauce and rub. Most of these shows wont allow me to serve hot food but what I am thinking is selling frozen bbq onsite that I have smoked, packaged, and froze. My thoughts are to sale by the pound. I'll bring with me a small chest freezer to these events and give out re-heating instructions
Would love you guy's input and thoughts

Check with your local HD. It's likely that there are very strict rules regarding vacuum packing, labeling, etc. Best of luck!

Yep. More than likely you will need Nutrition Information, a commercial vaccuum sealer, and a certified scale.

Sounds like more hassle than value.

This sounds similar to a guy I knew that sold frozen pizzas. He had to have a USDA inspector on site during production.
