Trust me up here you have to prepare for even that... I've got a small gig next Thursday at the cigar shop and they are allowing me to sell package meat... Only problem is I don't have any in the freezer... Guess I'm going to have to cook up some of the 125 pounds of brisket tomorrow in the cold (21*) and snow. Then I get to do another cook on Thursday for the gig...

Ohmigosh, are you serving and/or cooking outdoors? I do know we are spoiled here by fairly good weather year round. Stay warm!

Temp at serving time last night was 30. Nice and breezy as well. Pretty sweet standing at the pit and prepping in the trailer! All worked out, and the chicken wings were my best ever.....40 pounds dusted with plowboys and smoked 2 hours then glazed with Blues Hog and Sticky Pig blend, smoked another hour.

Thanks all.... I am alive, and the food was a huge success! It was a lovely, sunny 70-degrees in Carmel Valley yesterday. Ahhhhhh, sunshine!

Photos to come later!

This is where we worked yesterday. http://www.holmanranch.com/index.html

Those sound like some delicious wings. They'd be perfect for watching football today.

First off, we have the best crew ever working with us. They are both hard-working and creative. I can't tell you now many times I have asked them to do something or make something and they do an even better job than I could hope for!



Salads



More stuff




Here is our friend Bill, grilling linguica on the back of the pickup and my hubby, Steve, in the foreground. Notice the folding chair... yeah, wishful thinking cuz nobody had time for sitting.


We served smoked tri-tip beef, linguica, bbq beans, spring green salad, veggie pasta salad, garlic bread and Steve's fresh salsa and chips. Oh, and we did two packages of beef hot dogs for the small children and mostly adults ended up eating the hot dogs. LOL

Of course many had never tried smoked trip tip, and loved it. Also popular was the linguica we bought from a local meat market who makes great sausages.

Sadly, I never end up getting a photo of the meat itself because we do not put it in the chafing dishes until just as we are ready to serve and then I am too busy to take photos.

Our bbq trailer

Absolutely beautiful tablescapes, Marsha! I love the vegetation under the chafers and enjoyed the angles you gave them!

Why thank you very much, BBS! I looked at photos of our first catering job and realized how awful it looked with the chafing dishes all lined up straight and boring looking. The angled chafers look better, IMO. And I like the look with the ferns (leather leaf) around the table. Nice greenery goes with just about everything. Some tablescapes you want the fluffed linens, but this was a 'country' wedding so I thought the leather leaf was the way to go. It also helps that one of my crew works during the week for her family owned wholesale nursery and gives me a great deal on it. ;)
