Taking The Plunge

I'm taking the plunge, It's official, My take out place will be open by the end of June. ( I hope ) All the red tape and TONS of paper work is in order, But I have to tell you all after ten years of dreaming and three years of planning, I'm scared as hell.Ya all keep your fingers crossed for me and I hope for the best. I hope to live the dream. If I tank it, No one can say I didn't try.I'd rather work 18 hours for myself doing what I enjoy than 8 hours for any one else.I would also like to publicly like to thank my wife ( Valerie ) for all her support in this crazy adventure. With out her, This would not be possible. The menu is not complete, So any suggestions are welcome! Keep in mind it's all "take out" no room for a eat it and beat it place. But who knows?
Thanks for your support,
Chris L.
P.S. The land lord loves barbecue, That may buy me some time if things get tough. :biggrin:

Best of luck on the new Q joint Chris.

I'd stick with the basics. Ribs, pulled pork, chicken and possibly brisket. Offer some beans, slaw, and potato salad for sides and see how it goes. What will you be cooking the Q on?

Again best wishes and looking forward to hear how it progresses.

I agree with Kloset, keep it simple. All side should be stuuf that could be made in advance (stuff like Kloset mentioned), or quick like fries and hushpuppies.

Good Luck!!

Good luck. If you work it, it will be a success. Just remember that the mistakes you will make will only make you better. You are going to have a few. Learn from them, and DO NOT stress because you made them!!!! They will be a normal part of starting up.
I wish you the BEST. You'll be FINE!!!!!!
Smoke On!!!!!
