    With lunch over I would see the crew again at 7 PM to feed them New York
    Strip Steak, but I was to tired to take pics of that part of it. Sorry.


    At last my grocery truck! I know you are all wondering... what about
    refrigeration for the food? The beauty of order this much food from one
    vendor is:

    They leave the reefer trailer for you to work out of during the event.

    And so I now have a walk-in and a nice place to prep the cold stuffs.

    So I get to it and set up my prep station for making the salads.
    Sanitize the prep table and sharpen my knives... lets start to turn food into
    money!

    I sell a lot of salads, they are labor intensive to build from scratch, but
    with three people on food we are already over staffed compared to some of the
    things Zane and I have pulled off. Hand cut and hand plucked.

    I put together several tubs of potato salad as well, but I bring in Sysco
    tater salad and just add pepper and smoked paprika to save time. So no
    pictures of that assembly.


    We are at the time when we must prep the meat and fill the cooker....... this
    will take us through to about 11 PM we will get the beans and sausage in the
    morning along with the Slaw build. The Sysco trailer was holding a great
    36 degrees F for me..... I was about half frozen and ready to get out and be in
    the sun. I don't really bitch about the prep in the trailer, it has to be
    done and bitchin' don't get it closer to done!

    And as the meat will cook through the night we must return at 5 AM to tend to
    the meat and get the beans started as well as the rest of the set up complete
    for an 11 AM feed.


    Very very early start:

    Being in a remote location does not exempt us from food safety so we continue
    to run the sanitizing procedures as required!

    Well Bob, I see short sleeves and not snow on the ground, so I know this wasn't last night! Still looks like a helluva lot of work and looks like a great feed.[​IMG]
