Done vending for the year

It has been a fun two years vending now.
 
We vended the last event for the year yesterday, sold about $600.00 worth of food at a Fall Festival at a landscape nursery close to our house. The new trailer is great, the other trailer worked out all right but the loading and unloading the smoker was a pain, the wife and I could not do it alone so we have a electric winch to help pull the smoker up, me and another guy could move it up the ramp but not me and the wife, so I love the new trailer, plus it is 14 inches wider inside the trailer so we have plenty of room.

Our best event for the summer we were selling food at the rate of $900.00 per hour, unbelievable at the time, i still can't believe we sold that much food

I also included a picture of my family, it is me, the wife, our daughter and our son, they have been a big help the last two years vending and doing some running for us to get supplies as well as our son in law and daughter in law and our motorcycle friends from Wisconsin and our friend Frank.

Now we wait for the snowmobile races to start up in January

    The BBQ Sundae is in a bowl starting with a big scoop of our Cowboy Beans, then a layer of pulled pork and a layer of coleslaw and topped with a pickle spear and BBQ Sauce

    What in the world were you selling that brought in $900.00 per hour? That's great.
    And for how many hours did you do that ?

    So you did $4500.00 in 5 hours WOW. If you don't mind me asking what kind of car race and did you have to pay a percentage?
     
    Also on a less personal basis (lol) what are you making with 75 lbs of chuck roll?
    Thanks

    We make pulled beef sandwiches from the chuck rolls, I cut them into about 5 smaller roast's, when I buy the chuck rolls they are about 25 lbs apiece

    How'd you keep up with the demand with the Tri-oven?  It's a great little unit.  I have an older CTO.

    We do this as a hobby so we will not do an event that we cannot handle with the CTO
