Quanities for roadside vending
 
I have a location for my first roadside vending that is on a major road. This will be the first time setting up for roadside vending. What quantities of pork, brisket and chicken would be a good starting point? Thinking of beans, green beans and possibly mac and cheese for sides.

Start small and increase, it's better to sell out than to have a lot left over. Whether you choose to sell by the Lb will also increase what you need to cook. I'd say start out with 6 to 8 butts and increase to 10-12 butts if you are selling by the Lb also. How much competition you have could also determine sales. Our first concessions when we started out we sold 24 butts and 3 briskets in about 4 hours. With more barbecue available in the area these days we would do about half of that if we were lucky. I don't sell concessions much these days as we stay busy catering.
