My wife and I ran the whole show. My knees are killing me, but my bank account is happy. Catering feels like when we first started competition BBQ. You sometimes bring more than you should, you usually forget something, and everyone is working twice as hard as they really need to. But we are getting better at it. We only do a half dozen events a year. We are already taking notes for next time.

I made extra pork and brisket so I wouldn't run out, but I knew that my extras could be used for another event for 250 in two weeks.

Michael had fun. :wink:

Looks like a great job.

Love the pictures, especially that last one!

Looks good Todd! Just got home from doing 160, and we took 3 helpers. You da man!

Even if I say so myself, there were lots of rave reviews over the food.

I'll bet! I stood around and did a bit of future event marketing while "the girls" washed it all in the trailer. We cheat however, we use disposable pans and racks, covered with white, or, color coordinated skirts if requested. Throw the pan, wipe the rack, and toss skirts in laundry.

Always amazes me how people flip over good food. There are a bunch of bad caterers out there. Keep killin' 'em!

Got pics of the skirts? Where did you get them?

I've been looking for washable covers for my cambro drink carriers, too.

I'll take a pic tomorrow for you. We have a local lady make them. She charges us $6 each.

People like food that they don't know who to do themselves. BBQ is one of those that easily impress.

I love cooking these CAB briskets. What a great product!

Totally worth it. You can get a quality look for less than half of a low end chaffer.

I agree. Ours tonight was a golf tourney and scholarship fund raiser.
Brisket, pulled pork, twice baked potato bake, green beans, caesar salad, cookies, brownies, rolls and relish trays.

We did the mini salad bar that I learned from Randy. People love it, and salad costs more than extra brisket. :wink:

Shoot me the twice baked potato bake recipe. I need to start keeping a catering recipe book.

It all looks great, Todd!
That's a handsome helper you have there in the last photo.:wink:

Good job and I do understand the hard work and the cleanup is a pain.
I like the salad bar idea!
