    Hello,
    I just found everyone here and I predict losing many hours of sleep reading all there is to read. This forum looks extremely informative and there seems to be many nice people to meet in the coming weeks.
    I am planning to get into a retail restaurant serving BBQ with possible seating. I have had retail stores before but nothing like a restaurant. I dont feel like I am jumping into the deep end of the pool to see if I can swim but more like jumping off the cliff to see if I can fly.
    One question I have for all the commercial members here.
    I am scouting out the proper smoker for use in the restaurant. I have limited space and cant use something as large as a Souther Pride smoker. I have been looking at some of the Friedrich and Cookshack brands because of their capacities and footprints. Any recommendations of other units for a commercial application?

    thanks to all who answer by private email and good luck to everyone I have yet to meat......(!)

    Hey MRP, Welcome! Seems S.P. has some smaller units. I had seen on on a trailer concession wagon once. Was maybe 4'X3' as I recall... Ahhh check this unit out:

    Welcome to SMF! Since you're interested in starting your own Q place, you might be interested in reading this thread: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...taurant+search

    It's pretty informative about what kind of hoops you may have to jump through. Although I'm sure that varies from place to place.
