Fascinating look at a successful roadside BBQ vendor in the North Carolina.

I saw this featured on Food Network a ways back, and got a kick out of the set-up and delivery.

I looks like Red's BBQ is doing a bang up business, but it also looks like Red's employees are handling RTE food with their bare hands? Shocked

Chicken - 3 hours - 450 degrees? That has to be a mistake, right? Or a recipe for blackend and burnt chicken, one!

Contrary to popular belief, bare-handed contact is allowable in many places when you submit a hand sanitation plan in writing to you inspector, and the inspector approves of your procedures.
I have gotten a variance written for that in several places that I have worked. it is not difficult to do, and I bet if you read your local food codes a little closer, you will most likely find the same thing.

My dream set-up.
10 until 2 and sold out!
He'd do better with 2 less employees in there. Cool

Thanks Harry, I didn't know that.
Just the same, there's something about touching RTE food with bare hands that just doesn't set right with me.

What size gloves do you wear when you cook for your family?

I understand what you are saying but I think people get a false sense of security because someone wears gloves.

Reminds me of the grocery store. You know the "wipe" station that enables you to wipe down the grocery cart. I laugh every time I see people doing that. Are they wiping down everything else in the store? The cans, boxes, money in their purse etc.?

I agree, you can take some things to an extreme.

But how about that kid sitting in the grocery seat with the leaky diaper?

Is that really where you want your produce and eggs? Confused Shocked Wink Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

I posted this as an example of someone doing legal roadside vending.

And while some of the methods are debatable (I found the look of the sauce bottles to be not to my standards) it is the proper way to get-r-done if you intend to roadside vend.

Your certainly welcome Louie!

You know, I'm looking for a great price on a farm.

I can grow my own produce.
Raise chickens for meat and eggs
Raise my own pigs, beef, lamb
Install a grist meal for flour
Acquire a bakery to make fresh bread and rolls

We have already been there, done that a time or two, no?
Very Happy

Can anyone specify the date when this whole "Foodhandler glove" thing started?
Funny how I do not remember people falling over dead or getting deathly ill from eating at restaurants before the glove craze started.
And does anyone remember when their health inspectors made everyone get rid of wood cutting boards and forced plastic to be used? Low & behold a university study finds unsealed wood is more sanitary than plastic ever could be. And the real kicker is that the older the wooden cutting board, the better it is at killing dangerous bacteria.

Sure now everyone wears gloves, but they are causing more cross-contamination issues then when bare-handed contact was accepted by the H-D.

Walk into any fast food place and look around at all the employees wearing gloves doing tasks other then handling food, and using those same glove to assemble your burger as when they were mopping out the turd-house. Why is the girl at the register wearing gloves, and helping make burgers with those same gloves, how about the guy hauling out garbage wearing those same gloves, or the other guy trying to get the duck butter out of his shorts wearing those same gloves that he'll use to grab your drink cup by the rim.
YUM!! would you like a side of fecal matter that was transferred from those gloves to your food?

Thats why McDonalds employees do not wear gloves

Wow, I'm starting to feel sorry for posting my 'Opinion' about bare handed food handling.
Maybe I'm anal about it, but I don't like to see some minimum wage teen handling my RTE food with bare hands. The gloves may, or may not make a difference, but to me it does, so when I'm making sandwiches for instance, I wear a glove on my left hand and use serving spoons or tongs in the right. I have recieved comments from people that seem to appreciate this.
I assume there is a reason why doctors wear gloves for surgery, but what do I know?

'Duck butter'... That's funny.

University of WI correct? I remember that quite well.

I always like how something becomes the de-facto standard when there is no evidence to back it up.

Smoking for 14 hours & mustard in the sauce........two things that certainly aren't "North Carolina style".
