    Yeah...steam pans work I guess. Thick or Thin? I personally like thick cut bacon...it it is also pricier than the thin cut bacon... The thin...I have found gives taste and texture... where as thick cut bacon add to the taste, texture and the meal itself.

    BACON!!! What does everyone like? Precooked Its faster but IMHO it does not taste as good. I have used when I worked at one of the big three... Another one of the big three use to have a bacon that was raw and needed to be cooked. (this was pre dumb down era) I t was round...so when you put it on the burger...it covered the whole burger. They no longer have this. The danger here is either undercooking or overcooking it. Personally I like cooking the bacon when the burger is orderd. When I tried this...it cooked faster than the burger did and it was fresh and juicy...it just takes more thou

    You're not going to go off on one of those Million Man March-style numerology tangents, are you? ← lmao....Oh never that!...I just know that I can never sit down to rest...thinking "I'm the best"...I have to keep working to be the best at what I/we do. never gettign I am here to serve food to the people who are also my customers. I listen to them...I am not one to get complacent.

    I will have to see how "out of hand" things get. This is the thing that I am fighting within my own mind. Do I NEVER want to run out of food? or Is is O.K to say...Sorry we are out of this or that for the day. Right now...my customers have found out that if you dont get to No.9 early...you wont get a burger. Maybe this is O.K because of the nature of the business right now. Once I get perm diggs...this could get ugly. Also...my mindset of No.9... is that we have to keep working to be either the perfect 10 or the new No.1.

    Well...while it is on the griddle..I put on the cheese, Pick and grilled onions. I know what you are talking about though...condiment placement is an actual science...or at least I like to think so. Think about this...I like toast with real butter and jam...no jelly here. society somewhat forces you to eat this kind of toast with the jam side up, but...if you think about it...your taste buds are not at the roof of your mouth. just by turning the toast upside down..with either butter or jam...it is this side that come in contact with your taste buds first...it taste alot better. So my thoughts

    I noticed your said Pizza Parlor...are you from back east? I remember Nehi sodas...thoes were good times ← I grew up with Shakey's Pizza Parlors and Farrell's Ice Cream Parlors. Guess the "parlor" stuck in my head even though those chains have long since faded away. I've been a west coast kid all my life and was just being generous in my description. The place was a tiny pizza shop with just enough room for two tables and a refridgerated case for the Nehi's in a neighborhood strip mall. Everything else in the shop was counter and kitchen. edited to add: Don't let the soda be a sticking po

The sad thing is that they have changed their formula over the years. Today...the taste is watered down... DC...huh.....I've been through there more than a couple of times...on my way to VA Beach.

    50!! Even though it sounds great...the first thing I think of is 10 cent deposits here in Michigan, storage and the cooling...Oy! thats enough to make one meshuga! Its a crazy idea...I kinda like it but I don't know how feasible that is. I really dont like gimmicks...but then again...one can look at not having a gimmick a gimmick within itslef. I would also have to find more than one distrib that carry the sodas I want. My time of owning a hotdog cart has taught me to NEVER rely on one distributor for any product...that is asking for trouble. I am a strong believer in being self reliant when

    B&M=Brick and mortar...ie "traditional restaurant" Some are trying to bring them back...Crush and Jones soda...But I like the ones down south...they were a bit beat up around the edges and the glass was thick...you can tell they have been around for a while. I guess I just have an old soul. I like the way things were done back then. Not because its "cool" now, its just that life seemed so simple then...even though it wasn't from what I'm told and finding out. It just seems that people took pride in what ever they did. My 1953 GE fridge is a testament to that...it still runs...it still kee

    I do love the long neck soda bottles though...its something about them...I used to see them down south alot..not much in NY though.

    I actually have a 1953 GE fridg that I am going to have painted in my logo red with my logo on it. This is for the B&M. I guess they both...Coke and Pepsi left a bad taste in my mouth...no pun intended. I called them both to try and find out what I could expect out of each bag in a box as far as volume goes. They did not want to help because I did not have a "location" yet. So my thought is if you dont help me now...when I am little...well...with out the foul language...I figure hey...I will go off on my own. They do so much business...I am small change to them and I'm O.K with that.

    Yeah...I have arelady sourced the bottles...but like you said...it is work. Cleaning the bottles, lables..stuff like that. It all depends on the type of carbonation your using as well. I already purchased the stainless steel kegs. I plan to force carbonate at first. It's the path of least resistance. I figure this with a seven pass cold plate will work for a while. I just need to replace the tubes on the cold plate...cleaning thoes things are a bear.

    Great idea SundaySous. I know that I'd be a loyal customer of any place that could make a proper egg cream or a great chocolate malted shake. ← Tripple Head milkshake/malt mixer already purchased ..Stainless steel cups ...purchased Best ice cream to use....still searching.

    Well, I dont like Coke...More a a Pepsi kind of guy...unless its with 151, then there is no sub for coke. The tricky part is the "Natural Flavors" That could be anything. But with say...Ice cream...its lets you know the combonations of things that were used and what could be used to get the same tast. Its also based on the Nutrition Facts lable on the product. Now it cant do like a package of cookies...but a 5gal tub of ice cream...that it can do because there is enough product there to get a good sample of a batch....but this is somthing I will use wisely....dont want to go around "tasting"

    Well making soda in bottles have been discussed way up thread. This is something that has been in development for a while. Which bottles to use, Crown caps vs twist, logos and lables. That stuff was easy. Getting the final product to where I want it...now that took alot of tasting. When it is introduced, Rootbeer and Cream soda will be the first. Getting the cola down is the hardest part.
