Default Anyone cater in the Bay Area?

I have an event coming up and wanted to cater the event myself. I don't do this professionally, and don't see myself doing more than a handful of time to invest in a commercial size smoker. I'm having the hardest time looking for a place to rent one. So if anyone knows someone that can cater (~50 people) around my area or even willing to let me rent their smoker, it be great.

Hi There! Thanks for the notes from both of you. Unfortunately, we are catering a wedding in Carmel Valley that day.

Also a CBBQA member...San Jose to Oroville 181 miles, probably not a realistic option, but an option non the less!
