Default Want to start roadside BBQ

I'm looking to start a roadside BBQ in Bucks or Montgomery County Pennsylvania. I'm looking for any info and short cuts with dealing with the board of health.
Thanks Joe

There are no shortcuts, although I am not local to those areas. What I have found is that dealing early, and often, with the HD, and being straight forward is the best way to avoid snafus. Almost nobody wants to be a grinch, and to be honest, if you are straight forward, most government types will try and help you.

We had one pull out a hotdog from the fridge once and temp the hotdog.
I had one crazy lady (at a vending event) temp the fire, yes you read it right, the Fire of my pit. I told her "Mam, It's fire" It's going to be plenty hot! She said "just wanted to make sure"

No you don't.

Theres a ton of threads on this site about roadside BBQ. Look back at my posts from 4 years ago when i got started.

If you do a lil reading all your answers have been already laid out for you.

Good luck!

If government decides my career field isn't in their budget, I may be following down this path.
