Help with Son's Birthday Party Grub....
Well, next month my son turns the big 4. I've done brisket, chuckrolls, pulled pork for his other parties and in trying to figure out what to do for this year's party, I came up with a few more simpler ideas like bratwurst and hot dogs for the kids, and then I thought about doing some chuck rolls again............until, I thought, hey, why not some of my custom Sloppy Joes. Prep will be easier and allow me to spend time with my son and not tied up to a grill doing brats. My wife really liked the idea too. So Bacon Sloppy Joes it is. Can you guys help me figure out about how much ground beef I'll need if we are expecting about 19 men, 23 women, and 28 kids. Let's assume the guys will have at least two sammies. SHould I go with large or small buns? We will have chips and some kind of salad for sides. The party is at an aquatics center and we will be there for three hours, so I'm looking to go easy and simple. THanks in advance, Brothers and Sisters.
