    Growing up, we boiled hot dogs. Now they're cut open and charred.

    I don’t think I really told anyone.

    Essentially yes, you might make a couple grand one day then it rains all week and you lose it all.

    It’s just super volatile and I couldn’t see myself doing it forever, too much stress for too little.

    Another problem was how much Minneapolis hated on food trucks, we couldn’t reserve a spot or anything so a damn car might take your spot down town. There is two good blocks where everyone goes, if you didn’t get a spot there you might as well just go home.

    It blew my mind how they let cars park there, we each pay two grand for a permit plus 10% in taxes but still cars could park there. It was bad enough the food trucks had to fight each other, we had to fight cars too.

    If I could just post up year round in the same spot I’d probably do it still. The rat race killed it for me.

    Probably the best tasting dish I’ve made.
    Spicey pepper pasta
    And T-bone butter salted steak.

    The difference bettwen both taste profile make this taste really good.

    Aside from being more flavorful, the charring method is better because it gives you more options. Can easily throw some cheese on there and get it nice and melty. Better for chili dogs too.

    Based ln a few African food pages I follow, that dish he made doesnt seem too farfetched.

    The weather may not be an issue, but I don’t think it’s easy to make it with food truck out here either. A lot of competition. Plus, I think there are areas in LA that put restrictions on food trucks like you saw in Minny. Still, the fact you can do it all year round here does have to be a plus.

    Oh yeah, I’m sure it’s cut throat af just like here.

    Honestly if I was to do it again I’m going to the hood. Getting a deli paying two grand a month tops in rent and selling bomb food everyone can afford.

    I’m not with that 16 dollar burger crap.

    I haven’t really gave it much thought. I’m doing pretty good at my job now and my girl manages a place I used to cook at so I still got the plug on food. :pimp:

    @plansb Target, I think :lol:

    Off subject...last year at my daughter's annual checkup (she was 5,) the doctor asked her what her favorite food was. She told him brisket. I almost shed a tear on the spot. :pimp: :lol:
