Greetings from St. Louis

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello, My name is Paul. My friends call me Paulie. I stumbled across this web site and I think it is great. I’ve been smoking for the last 4 years. Untill recently I’m considering smoking professionally. My brother and I are planning to open a resturant in May of 2008. Our mission is to offer a menu that POPS.

Slow Smoked Bar-B-Que
Beef Brisket
Beef Ribs
St. Louis Style Pork Ribs
Pork Steak
Rib Tips
Crispy Snouts
Chicken Wings
Sliced Turkey Breast
Turkey Burger
Polish Sausage

Hot Sides
Fresh Cut Freedom Fries
BBQ Baked Beans
String Beans

Cold Sides
Homemade Potato Salad
Creamy Cole Slaw

Right now we have our recipes down, and we’re working on costing them out. Has anyone used any of the Southern Pride Smokers? We plan on purchasing one to smoke our meat. We anticipate selling about 1000 lbs of meat a day with 25% being ribs. I’m almost ready to join the OTBS.

Great food is the perfect balance of Art and Science.

Home built smoker

I've been working on a home built smoker. The proto type is a thing of beauty. I work for the city of St. Louis Police department in the Communications support center. Our radio system which uses Motorola Micor Repeaters is in the process of being replaced. I started my project with a micor repeater cabinate. I'll start a new topic when I get the pics. My first load of meat would make you want to smack your mother. St. Louis style Ribs, and a beta test of Short ribs of beef. I had to say sorry mom after every bite.PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

Welcome from another St. Louis resident. Keep us posted on the progress. Always looking for good BBQ in STL. Bandana's sucks in my opinion, my own is much better!

Greetings. "Freedom" Fries? I know that's just another, politically inspired, name for French Fries, but I thought that term went out of vogue several years ago. Good luck with your business.

Welcome to SMF! It sounds like you're anxious to get rolling on this new venture. If you're planning on opening by May, I assume you already have a location. I lived in St. Louis for 5 years and still go back there every year or two, so if you let me know where you are I'll be sure and stop by to try out your grub. Keep us updated on the progress.
