Default Small step towards BBQ Business

I know this is small potatoes, but it is my potatoes. Just checked my turkeys and temp, texture and appearance look great. I have 10 turkeys being smoked that I have sold to friends and family. I have sold each one for $45 with about $20 in cost. I am happy since, 8 out of 10 came to me asking if I would a smoke turkey for them. The local BBQ places sell turkeys for around $60, so I am saving them money while making money. Seems like I am starting to build a holiday business. Who knows, maybe it will grow, guess it depends on how well the turkeys taste.

Congrats I like the way your paying attention and starting slow and small. Best to make a small mistake than a huge one.

I know somebody who started off smoking turkeys on a chargriller on his balcony and he now has the Best BBQ in LA. Be careful what you ask for...
