So...My local city has a street fair on Wednesdays. From 3-7pm. I would love to do a pulled pork sandwich plate. I think there is a wonderful opportunity. Tonight we went for dinner. Pupusa's, Jamaican jerk plate, Filipino food, and some desserts. Along with crafts, fruits, vegies, and desserts.

A booth is $25. Seriously? What a great place to start.

My question. I know I could have plenty of pulled pork smoked at home held in coolers and served during the 4 hours of the fair. I just think having the smoker going during would help sales. Who doesn't love the smell of smoke? So power wise (generator) what do I need to run a SM-150?

Thanks for the info.

I know what you mean about the smoke. It does draw people in. I have an SM160 and it requires a min of 20 amp circuit it is 1550 watts, which is about 13 amps. Would not need to be to large of a generator. I just wondered if you have a cold smoking device you just put in the smoker and generate smoke. Like the amazin smoker. It sounds like you don't want to cook just get the aroma goin. Just a thought.

I agree that the smell of smoke would be a good draw. Heck having the 160 in your booth "holding" a couple of hotel pans of already pulled product would be nice.

After Hurricane Sandy I broke down and spent $1000.00 on a Honda Black MAX at Sam's Club. 7500 watts, I figure if I'm gonna be without local power again I want to have enough juice to run my well pump, hot water heater and furnace. It was $1000.00 at Sam's. I think if they are not in stock they can get one from their warehouse for you. Really nice knowing I went top of the line.[FLASH_VIDEO] [/FLASH_VIDEO][FLASH_VIDEO] [/FLASH_VIDEO]

Funny you should say this. About 3 yrs ago we had 90mph+ straight line winds roll through. Granted nothing compared to what you guys had to endure, but bad for us. We were without power for 4 full days in 100 degree heat. Did manage to string cords from 1 neighbor to keep fridge going. We just get that stuff and tornadoes.
