Im Ready To Jump In

I found the forum in a search for a Lang 84. I got a username to reply to the one selling it and now that Im sign up I might as well stay. Im planning on buying a Lang 84 soon. I got my eyes set on a new one but I was looking at used ones as well. Ive only smoke on small weber grills and turn out some great meat. I can't wait to buy a real smoker and see what I can do. I could make some money next year if I can perfect a big smoker. Im doing a event right now with 50,000 people and they don't have good quality BBQ. 360 days from now I can do that event. Between now and then I'm part of many other small events and I know I can make a few bucks if I perfect the big smoker. That event is not my reason for wanting to jump into a big smoker. Ive been wanting to do this for years.

I understand it can be a challenge to cook for a larger crowd. But one thing I don't lack is the passion. As long as I have the passion and it shows in my food I will be just fine.

If I were to cook for 50,000 people, 49,500 people would have to try it next year!

I'm already in the event with other stuff so I know how that does on the weekend. I've done food at events years ago that was not bbq and did well. I can only imagine the smell of bbq coming from a pretty cool bbq with crowds of people. As long as I can turn out great food fast and work a line im guessing I will do very well at this event. No food vendor smells up the place. I know if I can do it right this place will be a gold mine.

I love to cook so it will be exciting to see people love your food. My next step is to go to at least one cooking class by a well known pit master to make my skills better. After that practice - practice And more practice

Get some large yellow onions. Quarter them and throw 1 or 2 of the quarters in the fire every couple of hours. Yes, the BBQ and smoke will smell great, but the onion smell will make them all hungry and bring them to you. Don't tell anybody. Keep this a secret.

Thats an old trick among the short order fry cooks. When business gets slow throw a handful of onions on the flat top. It will make them crazy hungry.
