I did this on a budget, and to be honest if I lived in a larger area probably could have purchased a used setup and been further ahead.

What I wanted to do is be legal and spend as little as possible to get there.

I owned a 2010 6X12 Car Mate trailer with 6' ceilings, so just painted the walls and floor, put in a sink system, coolers, fan and light. I will have to have a 10X10 tent and chafing setup to serve but will get me through until I decide if I want to stay small or get bigger.

I can put in a serving window if I choose, but before cutting up the trailer want to see how this fall goes. If it goes extremely well may sell this trailer and pick up a regular concession trailer.

As of now, this trailer looks like any normal trailer until you open the door. I would guess I have less than $500.00 in the sinks, water heater and pump.

The nice thing about this is I am not counting on it to make a living, if it pays for my beer and gives me good Q leftovers for a while thats good with me.

But at least when people ask me to cook for them I do not have to hold my breath and hope someone does not get mad and call the HD to turn me in.

Took some elbow grease, a little time but I think will be worth it.
And who knows, could turn into a nice business venture, stranger things have happened.

Good luck Pa BBQ, you got the right attitude to succeed. I wouldn't rely on demographics anyway, my side of town lacks lots of things, but every time they put something up, they do well. Keep us posted.
