Default Florida Requirements

Does anyone know that the requirements are in Florida to sell BBQ on the side of the road?

Yep. Check with the Health Department. I used the office on East Bay a few years ago. They were helpful. Do some on-line research and you can find the rather lengthy documentation on requirements...I will say the county pretty much mirrors the state requirements. Also, don't forget local municipality rules. It's a maze...

Yes....don't spend any money until you check with the Health Department.

You don't want to have to buy something twice...because it didn't pass inspection
the first time.

Troubles Bubbles??????? Did you finally get approved? I think I'm doing a little better than you. For example as my sinks are for warewashing and hand washing only so all that air gap stuff does not apply. I needed a 6 gal water heater turned up to max heat but it should pass. Also got hit with a new NSF fridge ($1100) but that's life. And a new drain connection to be my mop sink with a cheap large funnel to pour slop water into. And they passed the 20 gal tank for waste with a 15 gal RV rolling unit and I have a 20 gal fresh. Big deal is self closing vending window and I think I have that licked. Friday afternoon he'll be here to inspect and collect $140 for the license.

And looks like I have a prime location on Thursdays until early October. I'm excited.

Passed finally Monday, went with bar sinks and 2 4 gallon water heaters.
Problem was trying to make do with the VERY large triple stainless sink i had, would have needed a hot water heater on a trailer by their specs so all in all life is good and i re-opened today to a very hungry lunch crowd!

Good luck with inspection!

PS, i just put in a screen in my vending window with a small sliding panel to pass food thru.

Is the screen self closing or did you buy an air curtain. That's a must in Kent County.

My hand closes it itself so I guess.
Air curtains are NOT bug proof, Mi. Food police are morons!
We need to get our own thread. Think. :)

Where is your prime location? I live near by and need to test some award winning Q. If I don't find some soon here in West MI, I will need to drive to New Baltimore to be schooled by Bubba.
