Still A Newbie

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I owned a BBQ Shack in Puerto Vallarta Mexico - Lobo Lui's BBQ Shack. We had two great years of BBQ, meeting people from all over the world and serving the best Q south of the border and I might add the only Q so I was the best and the worst. I imported a Ole Hickory Pit - EL - EDX from Missouri and built the restaurant from scratch. Some pixs on facebook.com and comments from customers on tripadvisor.com. Well now we are going to try again in Kamloops BC - nobody here doing real BBQ unless Korean or Chinese count as BBQ. I have a Bradley Electric to play with or test ideas out on. I know not a real smoker, set it up and walk away same as my OHP but makes great Q for us rookies. Got two daughters that will be able to help this time so should be easier to make work. I developed my own recipes for the restaurant with some help from friends in the business, experimenting with the ingredients available in Mexico, did you know that molasses is not available in large quantities and expensive, no Sysco's, Food Services of America or any of the others. The suppliers we did have didn't consistently have product - like deli paper or parchment paper or spices. We made it work and had a great time living in Mexico. What else would you like to know, fire away and I will try to answer any questions you have.

If you didn't read the Terms of Service notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums. Rule #11......"Off Site Links are not allowed here at SMF" is something new. There are other simple guidelines for all of us to remember as we interact here.


If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!

Kat - you're actual supposed to read the terms of service, I thought it was just to make the site look official and when you read everything else on the site and you were bored to then read it. OK I'm being a s____a__ but I hear you. What about pixs is that in there too? Never could figure how to post on that other site SR, pain in the butt when the camera takes high res pixs and the bear bites you. I will look for info about pixs, thanks Kat.
