Did you carve for people? Saw the cutting board. I have a nice one when people are watching but I usually use a plastic cutting board set on an one edge of a cookie tray to catch the juices and bits.

I'm glad you posted this, I have a gig around this size in about a month and I've been debating on how much to prepare.
Nice thought but hiking boots in the middle of summer in SoCal won't fly. My feet would catch on fire! They would probably be good for events during our 2 week winter though.

We did carve the brisket for the guests. Thought it would be a nice touch.

Also, if you can afford one I highly recommend a meat slicer when cutting certain meats for big events. Oh, and then you need a generator for places where there is no electricity available. Yeah, the buying stuff seems to never end.
For this event, we could have used a golf cart. The kitchen was almost 100 yards from the serving area. I have a blister on the bottom of one of my feet. Definitely the wrong socks in the wrong shoes.
Wait! Bigmista wrote a cookbook?
