Re:Infrared Burner in Food Truck
Hey guys, i've looked at roadfood a few times but I'm new to posting and I put my question here because I figured there would be more mobile food vendors in this forum than the regular restaurant forum, and I saw some of the last few topics in here related to trucks and trailers (how come there isn't a food truck forum?).
I do have deep fried bacon wrapped hot dogs on my menu, but my main sales are mini cheese burgers with homemade toppings; pickle and ketchup, an In-N-Out animal style knock off, really good boutique bacon and mango bbq sauce, fried quail egg and crispy onions with roasted garlic sauce and A-1, avocado ranch and 7-pepper relish, asian marinated mushrooms tossed in truffle oil with swiss cheese and roasted garlic aioli.
I can do all the same toppings on my hotdogs and fries but I don't have a way to melt the cheese on them (which I get a lot of requests for), and I need the space on my flattop to make more mini burgers faster (business has surprisingly picked up through the cold winter, and summer will be even busier I'm sure). thats why I want to add a salamander, I just don't know how fragile the ceramic plate in an infrared burner is. I tried contacting a few different burner manufacturers but none of them have gotten back to me, thats why I reached out on here. As I'm typing this I realize I never tried asking any of the companies that build food trucks, which I will do tomorrow to see if they know. But if anyone on here knows anything about them your help would be much appreciated.
