BBQ for 175
Many thanks guys. Lot's of good info. For this event it's a one time through the line thing. I too would rather have too much food than not enough. Although, the folks at the shelter claim that they usually don't get 175. More like 150. But who knows, if word gets out that it's BBQ - we could have a stampede. I'm sure they're used to getting bologna and cheese sandwiches. Or chicken soup.
I think I'll go with 105 pounds, just for yucks and leave the leftovers for latecomers or the next days lunch. I'll recheck the bean totals. I'm thinking 3-4 people per quart.
We are bringing the food and helping the staff at the shelter to serve. Obviously pre-cooking everything and reheating at the shelters kitchen which, they say, has 3 huge ovens.
Any other ideas are welcome.
Roaring Fork BBQ :-D
