Default What we do with 3 UDS's

Well after a year or two of dreaming and getting my stuff in order, I started selling Q.

I own a sign shop on a fairly busy route. We built a new shop 2 years ago and I included a a kitchen in the design because of this dream I had, so that hurdle was over.

With the "Great Recession" hanging in here in Mississippi I began to get serious several months ago about selling Q here 1 day a week to supplement my income.

We sell 1 day a week, Thursday, starting at 11:00 until its gone. The menu is Chicken Leg quarters, Pulled Pork, and ribs. Side items are baked beans, cole slaw, and chips. You get Sweet tea or Lemonade to drink.

We have done it 4 Thursdays now, sold out every week. We add a little more every week. People are going nuts over it.

Last Thursday I cooked 145 leg quarters, 8 racks of ribs, and 6 butts. Sold out by 1:00. The chicken is what everyone is begging for. I can't seem to cook enough. I didn't realize that would be the hot seller.

Here are some pictures of my cooking setup. This Thursday I will try to get some of the food line.

Sounds like you might be expanding the BBQ business. Great looking chicken! What kind of wood are you using?

Wood lump charcoal from Sam's and Kingsford.

My own rub... If I told you I would have to kill ya, and I would rather sell Q then sit in jail.

It is a "small" post like this that has such a "large" impact on people. I am very very glad to read that your little off shoot has met with success. I remember your post when you said you were going to start this. Congratulations! In these tough economic times it is nice to see that someone is benefiting financially while supporting a dream that they have had for a couple/few years. I wish you continued success, and please keep us updated!

@cfbeagle

Just an idea, if you make magnetic signs.. make a few like stating what you are selling and place them on the drums! People will see it easier and it will let them know what ya got going on.

Thanks for all the encouragement. Owning a sign business has been a challenge the last year or so with sales down over 50 percent.

I fills really good to sell people something they really want instead of something they just consider a business expense.

We sell around 100 plates a week. I encourage people to go for their dream. It really can work!
