They have a push cart at Fanueil Hall (Tourist Trap) here in Boston. It is the biggest food hit in the whole place. Just baked potatoes with any topping you can imagine. Absolute genius! Even on the hottest days of summer. Even fussy eaters love baked potatoes. Including kids. I know every time I went there, it was always the place I headed for. And if I was working in the area, I would go get one for my lunch. Love those crispy skins. They just didn't put a pat of butter on the potato, they poured melted butter all over it. They are very generous with the toppings.

Second this. Consider doing just drum sticks and smoking them. Drumsticks are easy to eat as they have a handle and you can add some comforting sides that will be kid friendly. Maybe a mac n cheese, some slaw, a carrot raisin salad, steamed veggies, etc.

Forget love... I'd rather fall in chocolate!
