Thinking about doing breakfast on the weekend's, I figure I'm up at 0 dark thirty loading up the smoker anyway, so it wouldn't be much of a stretch to fire up the griddle and crack a few eggs n fry bacon... what do you think or do??

The wife makes a great brisket hash that we keep thinking of selling in the mornings during some of our four day events.


Try and incorporate smoked meat into some of it, might do all right

From a customer's viewpoint...

Years ago Stamey's BBQ in Greensboro, NC offered a full featured breakfast on the weekends. Tenderloin, gravy, grits, eggs, biscuits, pancakes and the other traditional breakfast meats. The line was always out the door. If you're not going to go all the way in... aka just eggs & bacon then I'd be inclined to stay home.

I did brisket hash at a restaurant that I worked at a few years back. #1 item on the brunch menu.

I was working on a food trailer that was going to focus on smoked meat hash. ( never got it going as I had to much else going on) Was planning Pulled Pork hash, brisket, chicken and sausage. It is a great way to use leftover meats from the previous day.


Rudy's does breakfast tacos, and pig n blankets, both grab and go and made to order. They always have a brisk business in the mornings.

If you are there anyway, you might as well make some extra money from it. Just make sure you have time to do it, you would not want your main product to suffer because you were cooking eggs.

What is traffic like near you in the mornings? You might try just weekends to start.

^^^^This^^^^^^
if breakfast was not served at such ungodly hours, I may consider it again

I tried having breakfast here in 2013, my biggest problem was my breakfast cook. The guy called in sick at least once/week, he couldn't get 3 plates up at the same time because his timing thoroughly sucked.
Plus, the guy actually called my sysco rep and ordered liquid smoke for something, Yeah, liquid smoke. WTF!

We started serving breakfast on Sat and Sun about 9 months ago. Saturdays we serve 40 to 60. Sundays usually about 100 to 140. We do a lot of the typical breakfast platters. The big sellers are out blueberry walnut buttermilk pancakes, our biscuits and sausage gravy are also a big seller. Everything is made from scratch. We feel it is well worth while.

Well we did run a breakfast service on Saturday and Sunday and pleased to report it was a success..
We had a reg full breakfast with eggs, bacon, smoked sausage links, beans, toast, tots..
Three maple biscuit slyders, pulled pork, ham and smoked sausage patties, putting an egg and cheese on each..
Tea, coffee, juice..
It was relatively easy to set up and serve..
I would recommend it if you're already there prepping.. Smile
