I'm 17 (going to be 18 in August) I've been BBQing for about 5 years or so now. I have a masterbuilt 40 inch electric smoker. And a cheap little charbroil offset. My friends and family rave about my BBQ. I would like to start catering for my high school marching band. Come out one morning. Not go to practice for one day, instead go out to the parking lot and smoke a bunch of meat. Have it done for the end of the afternoon block at about 6 pm. For about 200 people band and staff.
My problem is, do I have sufficient cookers to get the job done. Or do I need to rent a cooker or better yet. Save up to buy a trailer rig off eBay. I would plan on cooking ribs brisket and half chickens. As well as some sides like baked beans.
Also. Would I need any kind of licensing to do this? I love in Louisiana. Our band director usually just gets the booster club to cook us jambalaya so I don't think they would have any licensing either.
If I were able to cater a small event like this. It would really boost my confidence to start offering it for like. Family reunions or parties.
Thanks for the advice everyone!!
