How much BBQ Sauce to Serve?
How do you fellows figure the amount of BBQ sauce to serve/deliver when catering?

Let's say you have a catering gig for 100 head...

A) How do you figure the sauce amount to give out?
B) Is there a tendency to use more sauce when it is a self-serve buffet than when you drop off the food and leave?

Does 2 gallons sound right?

If I'm serving, I keep 6 gallons in the trailer and get more if I need it. When dropping off, we figure 1 quart per 1 Steam Pan of meat (about 20#'s).

We've always done well with 1 oz of sauce per person.

Some take more, some don't use it all, averages out.

2 gallons should be fine with 1 for back-up. :biggrin:

A gallon usually gets me through a gig of 100 with leftovers!

Thanks for the answers, guys.
It sounds like I will be fine with 2 gallons should the gig come through.
