No negative comments from me Jay,  I wish you all the best with your dream. Having the local council on your side is a great step forward, around here all they want to do is to try and stop folks having a go.

What size truck are you thinking about?? Transit size?? 7.5 tons??.

All here to help.

Personally, I think the Bradley option is going to be very expensive in “Pucks” the wood disks for cooking.

You would also need a generator as these run on mains voltage.

Horizontal space in a truck will be limiting with worktops, sinks etc, so vertical Smokers is the way, and I think that’s why you choose the Bradley Cabinets.

I would look down the UDS route. Three In a line, no power required to run them.

Hey @jay_dyker88 what about something like one of these? http://www.horizonbbqsmokers.com/trailer-smokers or a uk company https://www.bbqmates.co.uk/product-category/bm-commercial-bbq-trailers/

That way you can just transport it to venue and pitch up. Maybe you could use a decent pop up Gazebo to give a little weather protection or as @Smokin Monkey said go for bullet smokers on a similar trailer. Could you get a wooden shack that you can cut and fasten together to make a popup shop?

Best of luck in it dude :)
