Umm... your original post is you asking about going into the food business by selling a cooked protein to a restaurant. haha People in here are being cautious but they're trying to prevent you from getting yourself into something where you might end up getting into some serious trouble with the city.

I don't know about up in Michigan but out here in NC unless you're using their equipment, on their property, then you're basically considered an independent caterer and would need all of those permits. I can't imagine a legitimate restaurant would accept a cooked protein from a non-permitted vendor / caterer. If they would I'd run far away from that restaurant and never eat there again.

Good luck man but if they're considering doing some kind of "under the table" deal with you that's a massive red flag.

You turned it down...so I don't mind talking now.

If you like the folks next door and want to carry on with your current relationship, DO NOT go to the health department and explain the situation thinking you're just doing your own due diligence. What would happen is they would gladly help you and send you on your merry way. THEN they will quickly get in touch with your restaurant neighbor and ask them why they are trying to get joe blow down the street to cook them food in his back yard! While they will not get into any trouble (no food or money actually changed hands), they would have most likely gotten very upset with you for "reporting" them to the health department. Trust me, I know how the minds of restaurant folks works! It's a good thing you declined & saved your relationship.

So...with that said. Does Michigan have an outdoor grill regulation for restaurants? Some states allow cooking outside in the open air. If they do, then theoretically the restaurant could "rent" your pit & hire you to run it. That would be VERY easy, and VERY legal.
