Lots of good feedback and good questions from ya all, as I expected from this forum. Just to touch base on a few of the comments and questions. In the state of pennsylvania, as long as the smoker/cooker has a lid and food is covered during the cooking process its legal. We are not open to the public, its is for Legion members and their guest. I do a full clean up every night, will take care of any maintence of kitchen equipment as long as I'm using it, ie cleaning of the hood, etc. Only other cooking that was being done is for the Post Meetings ever 3rd tuesday of the month, but after last nights meeting, we will now be catering that meeting for them. I have extended an offer to teach/help in there fundraising events. So far its been a win win situation. They are getting a few more members, and the current members are really supporting us in having the kitchen open. One thing to keep in mind, you must follow not only health department code, but also liquour control board codes, especailly with cigerate smoking laws. Allot of states smoking laws are still very unclear in what is allowed and not allowed in clubs such as Amercian Legions, Moose, VFW, etc. As thing progress and we move forward, I'll share what I learn as it may help others. but I do feel as thou it is a great way to get started,, gives a person a good feel as to what to expect if he/she wants to open their own place.
