Question Getting started

Just wondering what the typical health dept requirements are to start catering? I know that a "home kitchen" is out of the question but i'm kind of in the dark at this moment on what type of setup I would need to satisfy any govt regulations they may have. I know each local govt has differant regulations but i'm just speaking in general terms. Maybe a certian type of trailer and smoker requirements??? Any help is appreciated! Thanks

Going to vary from state to state & even county to county within states. Simplest answer to your question is contact your county health department. They will give you a list of requirements for food handling & catering.

Exactly,
Do not buy anything until you have talked to your local Health Department.
You don't want to have to buy the right item after having bought the
wrong item.

Here in TX, county overrides state and city overrides county.

It
s my understanding that TN is a little more relaced than some States. Start by contacting the local County HD or if you live in a bigger city probably the City HD.

James at Extreme BBQ Trailers is also from your State and may be able to help you. He's a member here.
