I am thinking of a home based BBQ operation. I intend to have garage sale on weekends and just happen to be smoking some goodies and sell it on the side(under the table so to speak).
I was going to start by offering small samples to those comming by, and when hooked, take orders.
Would this work
The cookie ladies did it that way

Get legal and stay legal!!!
The people you will be hurting is not only yourself , imagine if someone decides to sue you claiming your food made them sick then where would you be?
Running a 'cowboy' operation will only tarnish the rest of us that get legal and try and earn a living.
The economy isn't good for millions of us but that's the way things are at the moment. Believe me I have had to sell my car and several other things just so I could get insurance and take the required FSA (food safety) classes.
If you are going to do it your way then I wouldn't go bragging about it on a public forum.
Slappin that bass like some delerious funky preist!!!
