I think I need to consider putting pickles in mason jars and sell them. People are coming in and ordering pickles by the quart. My staff will kill me though because it already feels like we're a pickle factory. Although I guess I could hire a person or two strictly to come in on Tuesday when we're closed but still here cleaning and taking deliveries, and just do massive quantities of pickles one day a week.

So many things I want to do and need to do, but so little time, and even fewer resources. If this week is any indication of what summer business will be like, I'm screwed (in a good way). This week the smoker has been absolutely at capacity nearly 24 hours a day. During the week we could get away with doing a couple less butts and brisket in the overnight cooks, but not anymore. Now the pit is packed overnight and we're even putting more brisket and butts on in the morning, which then takes space away for all the other meats we already didn't have enough room for.

There are worse problems to have, that's for sure!
