Congrats on your big step.I'm doing the same thing here in Germany because the BBQ market is bare and the Americans are plentiful.

Looking forward to a great success story here. You seem to have a good grasp on what you've jumped into and aren't trying to sail off to the land of unicorns and rainbows.

Very best to you on this incredible adventure.

Do you have a map to this place of Unicorns and Rainbows?

All the best to you!

As many, I'll be following with interest. No, I don't have any plans, but who know what will happen in a few years time?

Good luck. People tell me all the time I should go into the barbecue business. I do cater once in a while but just because I enjoy it. I know I don't have what it takes to do it for a living. Kudos for having the b***s to go for it. Enjoy the dream!

I wish you nothing but the best of luck.I too have endured the probing of friends to venture into the business.I like to cook.For fun,not because I have to.After conversations with current and former owners,I decided that only a swimming pool would be more of a P.I.T.A. than running a Q joint 24/7.It will be a 24/7 job even if you are open a few hours per day,a few days a week.Godspeed friend.On the other hand if you do what you TRULY love,you will never work a day.

Unfortunately, I don't have a good map. Fortunately, there are hundreds of people selling them every day on the Internet. They all promise to get you to that wonderful land if you just send them all your money.

It's good to see our buddy isn't going into his new adventure with sparkly eyes but with a steely stare on reality.

I know a few people mentioned seeing pictures of the kitchen, so I was able to get a few of those today. Also took a few measurements and it looks like I might be able to keep the smoker inside and utilize one of the existing ventilation exhaust ducts. That would be a huge improvement, so hopefully that will work out so I don't have to keep it out back in the shed.

The kitchen isn't much to look at, but that's fine. Only real work needed back there as per the health inspector was a new drop ceiling since the ceiling now is practically falling down, and then fix up the vinyl tiles on the floor or pull them all up and just paint/seal the concrete.




The big antique ice machine is going, though. It takes up a ton of space and even cuts off part of the doorway making it hard to get through. Going to get a soda dispenser/ice maker combo from Coke to put out in the dining room instead.



Here's even more refrigeration. A big three door unit.



There's a stove and oven tucked in the corner, but I think I can pull that, move the storage racks, and shoehorn the smoker there and tie into that exhaust, which would save a fortune. Hoping that works out now.


The walk-ins.


And finally, the main cooking area. Just a grill, large flat top, and fryer right now, but the flat top is going away and I plan on putting in a combo range/griddle unit there instead.

Great looking setup can't wait to watch it progress. Good luck!

Is it bad to want a flat top in my house...I think it would be awesome.

Hopefully there's a strong market in your area for used restaurant equipment because you have some gold in the units you're moving out that will help offset the good stuff you're putting in.

This is an exciting adventure - thanks for sharing.
