I pretty much know the responses I will get but please be candid. Here is Michigan things are getting pretty bad. I'm a builder and do some remodeling and handyman services. I am getting by but by no means making the money that I used to. I have a lot of extra time on my hands and it is not so much a money issue as I do have some free time and I really like to smoke and mess around in my sausage kitchen. I have stainless steel tables and a stainless deep sink as well as hot water and sanitizing equipment. I want to make beef jerky and sell it. My plan is to take top round or sirloin that I can get downtown Detroit at the meat plants for usually $1.89 lb sometimes less. I can make 30 lbs at a time and I have a commercial canister vacuum packer and want to package 1/4 lb units for $5.00 ea. My plan is to make about three weeks worth at a time. I have a lot of shot and beer bars locally and was thinking about walking in on Fridays I guess with some samples and sell my jerky that way. I thought a couple guys having a brew after work might say yea give me a pack or two. After all $5 is not that much to part with. I already have a huge following for my jerky recipe and make pretty close to 50 lbs a year for sale for guys going fishing or hunting. I am trying to make about an extra hundred dollars a week or so to just kinda help out with my spending money that I used to have up until a couple of months ago. I also believe that I will only be spending about two hours at most hitting the local watering holes. I know about the health dept. I will take every precaution to make things clean. I have been in a lot of restaurant kitchens in my day and most I would never eat in again, so I know I'll be cleaner than that. Do you think this will work?
