In California our best selling product is tri-tip sandwiches. We do sell ribs at vending events, but sell a lot more sandwiches than ribs. We smoke them and then finish them up on the grill which is placed out where the public can see the ribs cooking and they stop and talk to my husband who is a great BS-er and seller of ribs ;)

Also, once I had large signs made with pics of juicy looking ribs we sold a lot more of them. Same with the Grilled Pesto Chicken Sandwich. I noticed lots of people walking down the row of food vendors and stopping to check out the photos of teriyaki bowls and plates at the Thai booth down the way. That's when it dawned on me that food photos would get more attention from potential customers than a plain old sign with words on it.
