Only cost we have for using the facility is to cover the increase in their electric, and the propane we use, which they have a seperate propane tank for the kitchen. We're really excited to get started, Have worked out a pretty good menu. I know allot of folks here have been looking for a commercial space to do some cooking out of, take a look at your local social clubs as more than likely they have a commercial kitchen and might not have anyone using it.. So 2010 is starting off good for us. Hoping it all goes well..
same question as BBQ Bubba ive been thinking of doing this at our local AL as well...issue is other than meat prep who is cooking the BBQ in a kitchen? Its still being done on a smoker that does not reside in the actual kitchen thus the health dept by me frowns on it..so not sure what the use of an approved commercial kitchen will buy me
