@ BBQ Bubba in a perfect world that's exactly what I would have done. If I only had a nice walk in cooler or commercial fridge and a little help. I spent the holiday after running two errands trimming and preping brisket and I did get 7 pre cooked. Today I have 6 cases of butt's to inject and wrap. Do't really want to see anymore brisket today. @ Pyle's you may be on to something about some vendors not returning I found out Wednesday that I can't use my generator there and have to purchase an additional electrical
hook-up @$250. Baltimore has got to be the most expensive place to vend at. The preakness 1 day event $2,000 - $2,500 avg 125k crowd Afram festival 2 day event 500k $1000 for food truck and $1500 - $2500 depending on location, Artscape 2 1/2 day event $3500 crowd not sure. you can go to Salisbury MD. 3 day $500 also has KCBS contest there.

That is the problem. Organizers think we are making money had over fist when we do an event. They don't realize the overhead, labor and logistics that go into doing an event. Do you have to give them a percentage of sales? If not then it might work. Just curious, what is your menu and pricing?

Brisket $8, Pulled Pork $7, Sausage $4, chicken tenders and fries $10, Hand cut fries $4 or $5 that's what I've been told people are paying for the fries. I'll try to see if anyone else is selling them and adjust accordingly. No percentage of sales. Hell they already got that off the top.

Hope things are going well. If you have, time a picture or two of the crowd and your set up would be great. I have not seen an event that will draw 500K in 2 days.
