When catering ribs?
I'm thinking about adding ribs to my catering menu for next year and I have a few questions for those that do them. If doing spare ribs how do you serve the whole spares or St Louis cut? How many bones do you figure per person for the price you charge? For me like when doing pulled pork I allow guests to have at the buffet and some may take a 3oz sandwich and others may eat 1/2lb. I figure and cook a 1/3lb per person and I have yet to come close to running out. I'd like to have a menu for next year with a meat selection and a price for a choice of 1, 2 or 3 meats with a list of meats but I am worried say if a group of 50 people choose spare ribs as the only meat then how many bones per person to figure for that. I have seen posts where people say 2 or 3 bones when there are 2 meats but what if it is the only meat? Thanks for your input...
