We serve buffet style and guests serve themselves and as much as they wish with the exception of ribs. I price the job to the client based on how many bones per person they would like. I would recommend they select 3-3 bones per person. I've had clients choose as many as 5 bones per person. So if I were cooking for an on-site service I'd have 100 leg quarters (to be safe) and 2-3 bones pp. I always err on the side of having too much instead of running out. 25 extra leg quarters costs $20-$25 but running out of food would cost you $$$$ in the long run. Just my 2 cents I use small leg quarters though but if you are using larger quarters you could reduce the amount some.
