I had a bunch of leftover meat at the last 2 gigs I did. But in both cases the customer estimated that a lot more people would be there. So I planned for the number of attendents plus a small buffer so I would not run out. I would rather have leftovers than be embarrassed by running out.
The last gig I did I could have easily left a whole butt in my resting cooler and brought it back home with me. But I thought, they paid for it so its theirs and they're gonna take it. So I busted it up and we put it in freezer bags and they handed it out to their guests to take home. The customer kinda seemed annoyed at this. This is why I asked.
