    If I do decide to get another trailer rig and it's not this one Lone Starz is my next stop I love their smokers. Excellent quality!

    EdF you are spot on about the caterer being established and having all the licenses etc. Plus he is just 30 minutes from me over the border into Wisconsin where catering and food vending life is much easier. This smoker or any of my other rigs would not pass in Minnesota for vending or catering. They are not NSF. I would never try to get a catering license at this stage of the game in Mn.

    About 10 years ago I spent a lot of time on the phone with the health department trying to get a straight answer on what I had to do to get smokers approved for food service. Every time I talked to someone I would get different answers to the same questions. So many contradictory regulations that even the inspectors didn't know which regs applied to a given situation.

    Wisconsin is just the opposite. You can pretty much park your rig and hang your shingle out and start business.

    Lord have mercy. That’s one beautiful rig.
    Being your in Minnesota if this doesn’t pan out for you I think if Spinaker were to grab this puppy I would be willing to trade him my LoneStar Grillz for it. 🤔😬😁😂👊

    I've always loved "batwing" cooking trailers! It's a beauty.

    Seems you ought to be able to set some kind of part-time boundaries. How often is that kind of firepower going to be appropriate? The nice thing is that given that this caterer is established, he's got the approvals and insurance and so on that would be a real drain on your time and brain going out on your own. Big benefit there.

    Hmmm,cooker? bumper dumper? Decision's decisions....

    I'd rather not divulge the asking price right now. I've known this rig has been available for awhile. He had it on CL about a year ago so I kept his contact number on my phone. Once my vertical/Santa Maria rig sold it got me thinking about this one. I contacted him and found it was still available.

    I am going to ponder all this over the weekend, probably make contact with the caterer next week and see if it's still a avenue he wants to explore. Lots to consider. He may want me to stop everything else I'm doing and run all my other private party stuff through him, who knows?

    As someone suggested I could tell him not to book more than 2 barbecue gigs a month so I don't get deeper than I want to.
    Maybe by Monday the MCS rage may subside a bit

    That is a serious cooker.

    Ya might try taking the caterer up on his offer, but tell him you will only be available "X" times a month because you are retired and not lookin' for full time.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
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.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
