I would like to start a small Bar- B-Que catering bussness in Ct. but I'm not sure how to start. Would my New Brunsfeld Hondo type smoker be enough to get started or do I need a bigger set-up. My neighbor said my Q was second to Amadillo Willy"s in Cal., and another said a freind of his has a company that dose Q and mine blowes his away. Just need some info on start up cost and min. amount of equipment to get started.

Insurance, advertising (I use the Yellowbook, e-mail, snail mail brocures etc.) is a must for a new business. Look into all the costs before getting started. If you do decide to go ahead, invest in GOOD equipment. The backyard guys get good results with just about anything Very Happy (I started with a New Braunfels too!), but you will quickly outgrow that size unit! Very Happy Give us a call or e-mail, happy to share our expierence with you!
