You don't want to see pictures of the things folks are selling? I thought I was helping.

I have a one burner gas assist charcoal grill called a Weber Performer that does exactly all I need done with gas...light the charcoal.

Not trying to be a smart azz here but

1. Isn't China supposed to be a smarter country?
2. Who gets a job selling something they no nothing about?
3. R&D is a valuable resource in any company.
4. Marketing goes a long way......

Sorry the post just rubbed me the wrong way....

  1. Depends. Espionage, Yes. Innovation, No.
  2. How many of you out there answered that ad that said, "Big money, set your own hours....?" Just me? hmmmph.
  3. True, but I think the brethren are an excellent demographic and resource for R&D. I mean, if the OP offered to send the first 100 brethren a 55 gallon new steel drum with matching lid, in exchange for data on cooking, how many of you would raise your hand?
  4. True again, but you can't market to an audience without identifying it first.. Well, you could, but you;d be stupid.

Of course, the OP could be whooshing us....

If you are selling grills as a salesman I would go for the one with the largest profit margin.

Yes I do want to see pictures. I just find it funny that you are the first to point that out. I do wait for you to point it out to sellers.

The bar is low, but I laughed. We appreciate you Ron. Not enough not to tease, but enough to like you being here.

Just wondering if this is what might be behind the post.http://www.theatlantic.com/china/arc...rbeque/275844/ If so, doing it right, might help save some jobs and part of the culture. Giving what is generally cooked, smaller thinner cuts, something with high BTUs and generous grill space would be important. Open face probably, not much need for a lid. Would imagine affordability would be a priority.

One of my close friends was a real estate agent and he always said that he couldn't sell the really small houses like those under 1600 sq ft and he had trouble finding people who needed or could afford a 3000 sq ft house but he could make a really good living off of the 1800 to 2000 sq ft homes, (he refered to them as his "bread and butters"). So maybe the same kind of rule would apply here. Instead of a two burner or a four burner maybe focus on the three burner with as many bells and whistles as you can get on it! Have a few of the larger ones on hand if you have customers who need more capacity for larger families but put your focus on the "bread and butters"!
