We are having a community Rummage/Yard sale here in the neighborhood on Friday and Saturday were quite a few ppl come to browse. Several of the residents on a few of the avenues all get together so its kinda of like a community thing.
The wife is selling quite a bit of old clothes and toys that the kids have outgrown and this is the 5th or 6th year that we've done it so if history repeats itself there will be quite of few people coming by.
I had a thought a couple of hours ago - What about smoking a couple of pork shoulders and a rack or two of ribs and fixing up some rolls and baked beans and selling boxed lunches for the two days?
Has anyone else ever tried selling their food like that? I know that when people have sold baked goods they have done well so I was thinking heck why not try to sell some barbecue for like $5 a plate for some extra side money.
Also, I've wondered about the idea of going around once a week to all the local business people in town asking if they'd be interested in buying a boxed barbecue lunch for Friday at Noon or something along those lines. Maybe include a couple of side dishes and a small dessert and a canned drink for say $6 a box or whatever I figured a good price would be. Maybe do like pulled pork one week then ribs the next then brisket after that or something.
Thoughts, concerns, or advice? I figured nobody better to ask than the pros. Thanks.
