I live in central CT. There are a few good places for Q in the area but not much. I lived in NC for a while and fell in love w the little roadside BBQ stands. A little place just went up for sale on a really busy two lane road, with biker bars and ice cream stands every 1/4 mile. Perfect spot for a southern style BBQ place. There is no dining room, just a big lot w lots of parking and a bunch of picnic tables...perfect. I am considering getting the place and doing a seasonal BBQ place...simple menu. I envision just pulled pork, brisket, ribs, and burgers w a few classic sides. There is nothing like this anywhere in ct. I have never owned a restaurant but have cooked at restaurants for about 8 years of my life during undergrad and grad school. I have been a pretty hardcore Q'er/ smoker for years.
I checked the place out and the kitchen is set up well, would just need a commercial pit. Anyone out there own a stand or do trailer q? I know it wouldn't be easy, but am I crazy for considering this?
