    The fact that you have manage to keep afloat by applying yourself during the difficult times is proof your success going forward is going to be one of abundance.
    Much respect deserved, you did not only have yourself in mind but also those around you in need.
    Thanks!! Next time I'm in Port Elizabeth we need to catch up. Driven through a couple of times on my way to visit my cousin in Port Alfred. If you're ever there look him up he owns Graze a fantastic restaurant.

            Great story. My son and daughter-in-law own a restaurant in the San Francisco Bay area and did much the same. Indoor dining went to patio dining, pickups, delivery and farm to table groceries (meats, cheeses, fresh vegetables, etc.) Small business owners like yourself know a lot more how to run a business and survive than the best-trained MBAs.

            So glad to see this story, and so happy that you were blessed with enough orders and community support to weather the storm. I believe a lot of BBQ and take out restaurants in my area did pretty well too. More upscale dine-in establishments without an existing robust takeout business did not survive.

              Keep the dream alive! I love seeing this, especially in the midst of all of this. It says a lot about you and those you have around you that the biz was able to survive. It will make everything else seem easy! (Or easier)

            Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

            GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


            GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
