    I’d be interested in a catering business model. We love ‘cue but don’t know quite how to make it pay to the level of actually opening a business. Might be a good discussion item.

    Do you have any experience catering? Here is a $30 ebook that might be a good place for you to start learning. There is a lot of potential in catering for businesses, reunions, weddings, etc. I wish we had more personal catering experience to share.

    Sorry, we don’t offer financing, but you’re better off just going to the bank to get a loan. Do you have any questions about specific options or anything?

    Hi Lavern,

    Would it be possible to open an account with you to send you periodic payments that would build up. Then in the spring when we are ready to come pick up the cooker we want we can just bring the balance of the total owed. We would like to get the ts250 with the BBQ442 chicken cooker, the second alxe, extra tire, self package, and the trim package. This is a wonderful looking unit. Look forward to hearing back from you on how to set this up.

    Thanks for your time.

    Lavern, from a catering perspective, Which sells better? Smoked or cooked in a pig roaster? I am looking at your monster unit with dual 250’s a pig roaster and a chicken cooker. Just trying to gauge if the pig roaster will be used. Do you usually do your butts with smoke or on a pig roaster when cooking for a crowd? Seems to me there would be a difference in flavor if you are selling pulled pork…

    [Reply]

    Lavern Reply:

    Gary,

    That’s a good question. You definitely want to cook your pork butts with smoke, whether you use the TS250 or the pig roaster. On the pig roaster you can either go with the gas model or the charcoal model. The only way to get smoke flavor with the gas model would be to add wood chips to the optional chip tray. With the charcoal pig roaster, you would get the same flavor as you would from an offset smoker. This would be great for butts, ribs, whole hens, briskets, etc.

    But the big reason to add the pig roaster to this rig would be if you want to cook whole hogs. Some people love the gas models because you can set-and-forget, but others love the “authenticity” and flavor of charcoal. But depending on your needs and how you cook the pig, it would be just as good to cook it on gas. If you want to cook a butterflied pig, for example, then the smoke would be more important, but if you only cook the pigs with the belly sewn shut and you want an automatic roaster in a restaurant, then gas would be great.

    Hope this makes sense.

    @AL MITCHELL, Sounds exciting. Did you get a quote yet on having two chicken cookers instead of one? Marlin would be happy to get you a price so you know exactly what you’re looking at. –Lavern

    AL MITCHELL Reply:

    hi lavern,yes i got the quote,and now making plan to purchase two bbq42 that would let me start BBQ STAND,AFTER THAT I WILL ORDER THE TS250 COMPLETE TWO MORE BBQ42 THEN I WILL BE FLIPPING A LOT OF RIBS,

  9. Pete Says:

    On the BBQ42, how many pieces of chicken can you get on the grate at one time for say chicken thighs or leg quarters? Also, does the insulated model make a big difference on keeping the heat in? In other words, if I wanted to do two or three batches of chicken, would I still need to add more charcoal on the insulated model? Thanks!

    [Reply]

    Lavern Reply:

    I don’t have a piece count, but you can cook 40 pounds of chicken at once. Yes, the insulation makes a big difference. Insulation adds a sealed double wall to the firebox. The lid won’t be insulated. With insulation, you should be able to cook three rounds of chicken with one load of charcoal, instead of one round. This means serious charcoal savings if you use it a lot. Plus your paint won’t overheat and peel off, so it will take less repainting and maintenance. I don’t want to make it sound like the paint job on these is junk. They use high heat paint, but these pits endure a lot of heat. –Lavern
