    Hello everyone! Texas resident and fellow Griller here. I am a 29 year old Firefighter with aspirations to someday open a food truck company. I LOVE to BBQ! I never gave it much thought and would blow the idea away whenever people would suggest that I sell my cooked goods, but at 29 I'm starting to get that "Well why the hell not" feeling, lol. Only time will tell, but in joining this forum i hope to learn and exchange knowledge that can help get me there!

    Welcome to the forum, Fire!
    You never know about that food truck idea. It could happen. I've done two trade shows in Texas, one in Austin and one in Dallas, and when lunchtime came, even though there were restaurants within walking distance everyone headed for the food truck...

    Thanks, Dan! I'm from South Texas and Food trucks are barely becoming a thing. I'm starting slow, though, and will probably start selling at the local flea market soon.
    Brisket, brisket burgers, and Beef ribs will be my main menu items. Here's a bit of my work...

  11. Welcome from Houston. You have found a great group. I searched here this morning and found why a cook yesterday did not work like I expected. As this is a group that aspires to make fires--or at least smoke--you have found like-mind folks. Thank you for your service and willingness to put your life on the line for the rest of us.  We appreciate it.
