Speaking from experience and tagging on to others bbq sells at 8, 9 or 10 in the morning. It's just a little slow. At Atwater we actually start selling before we open at 10:00. People want to beat the rush. We thought about doing something breakfasty (I know it's not a word) at Torrance which starts ar 8, but low and behold people want bbq at 8 and yes we sell some fatties as well.
If you're gonna hang out your bbq sign that's what people are going to be looking for. So give the people what they want.
And we highly recommend pre-cooking. They load and get the smoker started before they leave the driveway so some stuff is warming while they set up the booth.
I hope you all noticed the they. I roll-in in time to start taking money.
