Central, IN a fella out? Looking for BIG smoker to rent around Indy.
I'm doing a Saturday night smoked chicken dinner for my church at the end of September.

I need to be able to cook 600 chicken quarters and have them ready to serve all at 5:30 pm.

I have a Traeger 200 that is available for rent, but I'd have to drive a 6 hour round trip to get it and the same 6 hr round trip to take it back. I can do that.....but would rather not for obvious reasons.

My wife (of all people) suggested that I post here and see if there happens to be anyone in the area (within 1 hour of Indy) that happens to have a large enough cooker that I can rent for that weekend.

SO.....anyone? Anyone? Beuller?

Feel free to PM me if you don't want to post here.
Thank all.

And are you looking to do all 600 in 1 cook?

The festival is Sept 27 & 28.
I'm doing probably 2 cases of butts each day (or the night before each day) for serving in the food tent.
The smoked chicken dinner is Saturday, the 28th.

Yes, the chicken all needs to be done and ready to serve at the same time. I don't want to hold chicken quarters, so I do plan on cooking all at one time if possible.

My thinking is that if I can get a big enough smoker to cook all of the chicken, then I'd just use that smoker to do the butts on Friday morning and also Sat morning. Then it would be freed up to do the chicken on Sat afternoon. Dinner service (chicken) is at 5:30.

Ok... I'm working on something for you. I'll let you know if I have any luck.
