Dr of BBQ new menu items

Springfield’s Original “FAT JACK LUNCH” - A big big Baked Potato smothered with cheddar cheese then piled high with our famous smoked pulled pork and fresh chopped onions. Then we add more cheddar cheese and finally a splash of our own BBQ sauce: $5.95* (Eat 3 at one setting and get them free, ask for details)





So this is a new item at my concession trailer and of course I stole the name from a post here on the forum. But the fat jack sandwich isn't currently being sold here so what the heck.

    I started serving Smoked Chicken Breast yesterday and they got some pretty good reviews. I just trim them if needed and use my standard dry rub and throw them into the Klose Smoker. After they're done I hold them in my steam table with a little apple juice.

    I nuke them. I did a bunch in the smoker but can't keep up with the demand doing that. The smoker is about 60 feet from the back door of the trailer and it seems I walk out there for something 200 times a day. I also don't want to move the smoker any closer because most of my customers talk about smelling the food cooking as the drive by. I'm on the busiest corner in Springfield and I think between Veterans Parkway and Wabash I see 34,000 cars a day. Besides in-between each step they get nuked to melt the cheese. I didn't think the BBQ Sauce was going to be good with the cheddar cheese and didn't plan on adding BBQ Sauce, but I tried one and it was an awesome combination.
    So now I nuke a few at a time and put them in a dry steam table drawer and hold them at 140 degrees, until I get an order then hit it on high for two minutes to get the temp up and then add the cheese. Then nuke it for 30 seconds to melt the cheese and then add the pork. Finally I top it with more cheese and hit it again for about 15 seconds then add the BBQ sauce. So it takes about 3 minutes from start to finish after an order is placed. I'll keep refining the process as I go along. In fact I may add some butter to them before I put the first cheese on. I haven't tried that yet but it'd add a little more moisture to the finished product. I'm sure they lose some moisture while sitting in the steam table drawer. I bought a heated star cheese dispenser the other day and it should be here in a week so that will save time and cut out two steps.By the way any suggestion on how to make this a better product would be appreciated.

    Y'know Jack, a dollop of sour cream instead of the second layer of cheese might not be a bad thing. A sprinkling of chopped chive or green onion on top for color and flavor and you've got an even bigger winner!

    yea, sour creme, chives, cheese, q sauce, meat, and maybe butter under it all. dont see any veggies, though.
    we been sellin the stuffed spud for yrs. we use 50 count, or 40 count, depending. i bake them in smoker, takes about two hours. i hold them warm above smoker(sometimes, i have to nuk for a min or two.), when order comes in, i sautee peppers and onions on the flat- top in garlic butter, while that is working, i stuff a half pound of meat(pork or beef) inside the tater, then cover it with the veggies,
    and smother with lots of cheddar. serve it up with butter, sour cream, q sauce, and garlic bread. $7.45
    good looking breast, dr

    Here's another idea Doc. Start out with some butter, add red onion, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and top of with chili.

    Dr. BBQ

    I am not much of a potato fan but the new dish looks tasty. I think the option mentioned using chili would be nice. I really dont see ladies ordering it (carb watcher) but of course guys will buy it.

    Your chicken breast looks excellent. As long as its juicy should sell well.

    That fatjack does look good! The only thing I do different is fluff the potato inards and add butter b4 topping and since the oven is still warm th4e stuffed spuds go back in for a couple minutes but then thats for home comsuption.

    Since your doing chicken know a pulled chicken tater would probably go over pretty well

    That's another thought Jack; why limit the toppings to pulled pork? Offer the potato with an option of chopped brisket, pulled pork, pulled chicken. Maybe even a vegetarian version topped with your outstanding BBQ baked beans! Just put a baked potato on the bottom and the topping variations can be endless. Of course you may not want that either...

    Doc & Raine,

    Those both look good, I have experienced several versions of a Q stuffed tater, and I have enjoyed them all.

    Buddy, yes offer the other meat as choices too.

    Big Bob Gibson's in Decatur, AL serves this HUGE potato with a mountain of Q, sauce, sour cream, cheese. I am a big eater but I could only eat about 3/4 of the one I got last time I was in.

    John, your chili potato looks good too, Skyline sells a chili potato, but it's nothing like the one you pictured.

    Aw right now yall made me hungry, it's 3 hours til dinner

    You're evil, Mr. Mayor.

    I had a salad for lunch. So that means I can have a BBQ tater, some ribs, and wash the all of it down with a large amount of beer, right? Right?

    I had a Breaded Pork Tenderloin with Onion Rings and a cup of Chili for Lunch (Culver's). Janet has grilled Salmon w/crab stuffing on the evening menu. Sounds like we both will be well-satisfied at the end of "Supper"!

    Thanks for posting the BBG tater picture. That is the one I have always enjoyed. That is, when I am in their neighborhood.

    Sour cream. We slice the potato, otherwise the bbq would never fit on it. It is pretty much a meal in itself.

    Al,

    Thanks for posting the pix.

    I am looking forward to enjoying one of those on 2-13 about 2-3 pm and then a couple pounds of poke for snacking on the rest of the trip.

    I dunno. Baked stuffed 'taters are a specialty of mine at home. IMO, the above combos wouldn't work for me. Maybe more later.



    Also. No "fluffing" of the bakers shown? Why?

    Buddy I can go for that.

    Bass Rocker yea, sour crème, chives, cheese, q sauce, meat, and maybe butter under it all. Don’t see any veggies,

    Bass Man Sounds good to me with the exception of the veggie part. LMAO I sell BBQ not diet stuff. LOL

    John A Start out with some butter, red onion, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and top of with chili.

    John I like your style or lack there of. LoL I’m just waiting for my new star Cheese heater dispenser to do the Chilli thing. Please note correct spelling for that word (Chilli) I’m in Illinois.


    Tex Grill Your new dish looks tasty. I think the option mentioned using chili would be nice. I really don’t see ladies ordering it

    Tex I’ve sold twice as many to women than men so far. And that blew me away. I would have thought as you it would be the other way around. Strange huh?


    Dreamz Painter fluff the potato innards and add butter b4 topping

    Dreamz I’m currently looking for a tool to do the fluffing with. Think my hand drill with a an old egg beater from a mix master with the blade cut in half will work?

    Buddy Roadhouse why limit the toppings to pulled pork? Offer the potato with an option of chopped brisket, pulled pork, pulled chicken. Maybe even a vegetarian version topped with your outstanding BBQ baked beans!

    Buddy you’re on to something and now a new BBQ Potato Menu is in the works.

    Roots Man I like baked beans on my baked potatoes.

    Hey Roots now your talking that will be offered TOMORROW. Great idea!!

    Ajudicator I dunno. Baked stuffed 'taters are a specialty of mine at home. IMO, the above combos wouldn't work for me.

    HUH, Why Not?

    JACK,

    It all looks good, but the "tator" is a meal on a plate! There used to be a joint in Lexington, Ky called "TATOR JUNCTION" and the served the biggest potatoes I've ever seen. They had over 100 ways to top it...YUM!!
    If I'm ever up your way, I'll be sure to stop in!
