Make sure you post some pics of your trailer and smoker here for us to continue to follow along.

That's pretty bad ass! The golf course has been instrumental in making this happen and soon enough the best BBQ in town is going to be served regularly there.

We got a 24' porch concession trailer with about 14' of enclosed room. What smoker is going on it?

Quick update...


- Water system being delivered Monday
- Warming cabinet delivered Tuesday
- Stainless tables ordered


Waiting for the Health Department to open back up hopefully this week but Indiana just extended the "Stay At Home" to at least May 1st so we will see what happens.

That's great news! We are just sending our rig out to paint. Then it will go to wrap, then install the plumbing and electrical. But everything is mounted, fabbed, and ready to rock and roll. Scheduled for 3 weeks with the county inspection.

We'll brethren, what a wild few weeks it's been. My wife, 18mo old son, and I moved into a new house with space we can grow into and where my office isn't doubling as the nursery. Building took over 6 months but we finally moved in. House is on the golf course that we will be bulk selling to for them to sell at the clubhouse and halfway food shack. We've been generating quite a bit of buzz around the area lately.



Here's another update!

- We made the paper (http://www.inkfreenews.com/2020/05/0...the-community/)
- Trailer has had all vinyl removed. All panels have been painted "Smoke Gray" and we will be changing the chrome to black to outline everything. Once finished paint will get over to designer to finalize our logo placements and such.

- We had the service window cut-in, it's been primed and will be painted this week.


To finish the trailer we just need to finalize where everything will be placed once get the health department to come out and take a look at things. I still have a bunch of paperwork to file with the state but we are getting real close!

Just another quick update!

- Health department inspector came out for kind of a prelim meeting to just let us know any glaring issues, etc... said with the trailer in the condition it's in, it would take 10 minutes for the actual inspection as long as all the (brand new) equipment is working.
- We decided to forego the whole wrap, and ended up painting the trailer a "smoke grey" base and changing the chrome to black
- Finalizing the commissary agreement tomorrow morning
- LOOKING FOR BRISKET AND PORK BUTT SUPPLIERS!

I'm so stoked to show the Brethren what we've got going on and share our plans to make an impact in the community. Cheers yall!

We’ve been open for about 2 months now basically doing a “soft opening” and figuring out processes and quantities.

This was last Thursday and our first official “sellout” in the big trailer.

I’m going to start a new blog post and kind of condense this thread along with LESSONS LEARNED.

Because holy **** have we learned some things.

But this.... seeing this makes it all worth it. And seeing a bunch of return customers come back and say “you’ve got the best brisket in the county”

.... humbling to say the least.

Congrats on selling out!

What's a pudge muffin? I'm assuming it's not what I'm seeing on my google searches..

Congrats. It sounds like we started our business at the same time. Trailer was completed built end of may and June. We have been open about 2 months as well.

When will you be posting up some pictures and videos of the trailer. Really Excited to see it.

Congrats on opening yours as well!

We are still finalizing the graphics and working out what we’re going to do for the winter. But we’ve done a couple events and have gotten into a decent groove. Hopefully we will have them on soon and will do a bit of a walkthrough.

We definitely aren’t making life changing money by any means but this experience has been life changing in so many ways.

For anyone considering opening a food truck just know that it’s way more work than you’re thinking it is. I promise. Especially if you plan on doing your own marketing, accounting, etc...

However I’ve met so many awesome people and have had some interesting opportunities come about because of it.

Be prepared, you gotta grind.
