After everything Iv'e learned from alot of these folks here (forum wide) I could compile or write a book on how, what, what not to do in starting a BBQ joint (mobile or brick and mortar)...
Maybe that will be my second million $$$... I gave up on my first...

Just finished reading that thread and you're right, there was a considerable amount of information. I'm already lucky enough to have friends that are successful business owners that have seen me in action and really like my Que that they are willing to help back my venture if I actually decide to pursue this venture.

Thank you to all who responded. A lot of my questions were answered and I now have more concerns.
I guess my best bet would be to write a business plan and calculate all of my costs and expenses and see if I can make this work.
Thanks again!

As hesitant as I was before in the previous threads, still means, only one thing, you can study it to death have many a sleepless night, or just grab ones cajones and go forward, and learn from experience!! Thats what we did, and in the end it is you alone that will make the decision, and if you fail then it is no ones fault but your own
