Greetings from St. Louis

  1. Hello, My name is Paul. My friends call me Paulie. I stumbled across this web site and I think it is great. I’ve been smoking for the last 4 years. Untill recently I’m considering smoking professionally. My brother and I are planning to open a resturant in May of 2008. Our mission is to offer a menu that POPS.

    Slow Smoked Bar-B-Que
    Beef Brisket
    Beef Ribs
    St. Louis Style Pork Ribs
    Pork Steak
    Rib Tips
    Crispy Snouts
    Chicken Wings
    Sliced Turkey Breast
    Turkey Burger
    Hamburger
    Polish Sausage

    Hot Sides
    Fresh Cut Freedom Fries
    Spaghetti
    BBQ Baked Beans
    String Beans

    Cold Sides
    Homemade Potato Salad
    Creamy Cole Slaw

    Right now we have our recipes down, and we’re working on costing them out. Has anyone used any of the Southern Pride Smokers? We plan on purchasing one to smoke our meat. We anticipate selling about 1000 lbs of meat a day with 25% being ribs. I’m almost ready to join the OTBS.


    Great food is the perfect balance of Art and Science.

    Sounds like we will be able to learn something from your experience. Welcome from a new guy on the forum
     
  7. Well I am just down the road from you in SEMO. You will like this site alot. I havent been a member here long but have already found it to be very useful and everyone is so friendly and earger to help.
     
  8. I've been working on a home built smoker. The proto type is a thing of beauty. I work for the city of St. Louis Police department in the Communications support center. Our radio system which uses Motorola Micor Repeaters is in the process of being replaced. I started my project with a micor repeater cabinate. I'll start a new topic when I get the pics. My first load of meat would make you want to smack your mother. St. Louis style Ribs, and a beta test of Short ribs of beef. I had to say sorry mom after every bite.[​IMG]

    Welcome from another St. Louis resident. Keep us posted on the progress. Always looking for good BBQ in STL. Bandana's sucks in my opinion, my own is much better!

    Greetings. "Freedom" Fries? I know that's just another, politically inspired, name for French Fries, but I thought that term went out of vogue several years ago. Good luck with your business.

    Welcome to SMF! It sounds like you're anxious to get rolling on this new venture. If you're planning on opening by May, I assume you already have a location. I lived in St. Louis for 5 years and still go back there every year or two, so if you let me know where you are I'll be sure and stop by to try out your grub. Keep us updated on the progress.
