we need another forum category!

Post by oregon doug » January 1st, 2015, 10:59 pm

Don't know how to suggest this but I'd like to see a "catering" category so we can discuss how to make MONEY at his bbq game!
I'm sure there are a lot of caterers and restaurant folks on here. I would love to have some way to share our ideas and get the green flowing!

Not a bad idea. Unless there are two caterers in the same zip code, then all the sudden one would be like "HEY! HE STOLE MY CUSTOMER!!!"

In all seriousness, I plan on renting myself out as a way to put my food out there as well as secure funds for competitions once my smoker is up and running. I'd pay close attention to a section like that.

here's my latest plan for hiring out:

Around here we have many new breweries and "growler fill stations" (where you can drink beer or take a container to fill.
However, many of them don't have food, or really crappy snacks at the minimum. I have approached two about coming in and trailering the smoker in for a Saturday or perhaps a special event.
My plan is for one of them to have me there for Superbowl. to eliminate guesswork and have NO wasted food I want to do ribs with potato salad and that is all! Since they are already on Facebook and have a good following, they will announce it and promote it, and I want to have people pre-order their rack or half-rack, that way I know exactly how many I need and they are paid for, so if someone doesn't show up, too bad for them.
I will have some extra racks if I have room or maybe a couple of butts for sandwiches or sliders. I've had great results with little pork sliders at $2.00 each or 3 for $5. people almost always go for the $5 option. We've sold out of sliders every time we do these at football games and BBQ competitions. and they are profitable.
I figure the racks to go for a full rack for $25 half for $14. this makes most folks opt for the full. my observation in the Northwest is that 3-4 meaty St Louis Spares are about what most people eat. So splitting a full rack between 3-4 people makes a full rack affordable.
We have also done hot drums- smoked drumsticks dunked in buffalo sauce and they are popular and a good profit. Drums sold for $2 each.
