asking me why cost are so high for a team of 3.. I say Hon,(she's AF), Dear,I'm stuck with 2 broke ar## LEGS(2 Msgt Air Force) , and they don't know what to do!! and that did not work out well, so what's bare minimum cost on meat? Thanks for any input,, wife is busting my chops on price and probably rightly so, but what quantity and cost do most people pay for meats at comps?
Not to be mean or anything but that's one funny post right there..good god man who are you cooking for and who is eating all of that left over meat?..50 thighs is about 35 too many and 8 butts is a ton..we've cooked extra meat when we are selling it..which you might be otherwise I'd cut it to about 14-16 good thighs and 4 butts..1 brisket for us but most do two and 4-6 good racks.
