Just another quick update!

- Health department inspector came out for kind of a prelim meeting to just let us know any glaring issues, etc... said with the trailer in the condition it's in, it would take 10 minutes for the actual inspection as long as all the (brand new) equipment is working.
- We decided to forego the whole wrap, and ended up painting the trailer a "smoke grey" base and changing the chrome to black
- Finalizing the commissary agreement tomorrow morning
- LOOKING FOR BRISKET AND PORK BUTT SUPPLIERS!

I'm so stoked to show the Brethren what we've got going on and share our plans to make an impact in the community. Cheers yall!

We’ve been open for about 2 months now basically doing a “soft opening” and figuring out processes and quantities.

This was last Thursday and our first official “sellout” in the big trailer.

I’m going to start a new blog post and kind of condense this thread along with LESSONS LEARNED.

Because holy **** have we learned some things.

But this.... seeing this makes it all worth it. And seeing a bunch of return customers come back and say “you’ve got the best brisket in the county”

.... humbling to say the least.

Congrats. It sounds like we started our business at the same time. Trailer was completed built end of may and June. We have been open about 2 months as well.

When will you be posting up some pictures and videos of the trailer. Really Excited to see it.

Congrats on opening yours as well!

We are still finalizing the graphics and working out what we’re going to do for the winter. But we’ve done a couple events and have gotten into a decent groove. Hopefully we will have them on soon and will do a bit of a walkthrough.

We definitely aren’t making life changing money by any means but this experience has been life changing in so many ways.

For anyone considering opening a food truck just know that it’s way more work than you’re thinking it is. I promise. Especially if you plan on doing your own marketing, accounting, etc...

However I’ve met so many awesome people and have had some interesting opportunities come about because of it.

Be prepared, you gotta grind.
