Thanks landarc. My dad and I were strategizing earlier today and came up with exactly the same plan, but I'm glad to hear you suggest the same things. Tri-tip doesn't really fit the budget for this one, but...it's a benefit fair my brother is putting on for one of his clients and the budget they had not only covers all my food costs, but the purchase of some equipment that I needed to take my show on the road (chafers, ice buckets, cutting boards, serving utensils, etc) and I'll still come out a little bit ahead. I figure for this one, if everyone likes the food, I end up with some equipment and a little bit of cash, it's a win.
