Hey Kamado fans, here's a rave review of the Kamado Grille restaurant in Raleigh, NC from food personality Bob Garner on North Carolina Weekend, the weekly tourism program on UNC-TV, North Carolina's PBS station:
Does anyone here own a restaurant? I have been considering for many years opening one. I work in medicine and I like a lot and it pays well, but nothing really gets me as excited as making something new or something beautiful. I used to work in kitchens as a prep worker, short order cook, dishwasher, etc in places like Bob Evans, Little Caesars, McDonalds, etc. Nothing fancy as you can see. However, at home I've tackled some pretty difficult stuff and done well. I have had a couple Chefs try my food and say it was good enough for selling. My question is this following. How long did it take you to turn profit? How much startup cash did you need? How much profit do you make now from your business*dont have to be specific just rough idea*? Thanks in advance.
We started out with a sausage & cheese appetizer plate that had some sticks of cheddar and some smoked kielbasa (or something similar) that had some of their dry rub on it along with some dill pickles and banana peppers... I had a pork shoulder plate for dinner that had a mound of pulled pork with a couple toasted buns and sides of bbq coleslaw and baked beans.... I have learned one honest fact about being a serious backyard BBQ cook (as most of us here are.) It's hard to go out and buy BBQ that is as good as what we make at home. This BBQ was as good as any I have ever bought though.
