I did my first vending job this past weekend, it was a lot of fun with a lot of work. We (my MiL,wife, and I) worked a little town street fair. We were instructed to show up at 8am and set up and be ready by 10am. I smoked 200lbs of butts on Thursday and vacuum packed it all up. My original plan was to boil the bags in a gas fired turkey fryer, with water of course. First bag I did the seams gave and dumped the whole bag into the water
. Tried another and noticed it started doing the same. Luckily, I brought my royal oak smoker along. I fired it up and dumped the bags into a roasting pan and reheated that way. It worked somewhat ok, just enough to heat it up to get it into crockpots to stay hot. There has to be a better way of reheating, just curious as to what you guys do at vending jobs that require you to cook ahead. On a side note, I think everything went over well. We sold around 75 plates and about 150 pp sammies. We are looking forward to doing it again.
