For that many servings, I would never promise competition level chicken. I would promise the same recipe, but, for that many folks you either need a large rig and several helpers, or the ability to hold chicekns. You can hold them in cambros, which can usually be rented from catering rental places. But, I can see no practical way to guarantee or deliver competition grade chicen that way.

I wish you luck, I have done chicken halves for 200 to 300 covers, it isn't easy. And you are really gonna be moving to just get them served. We cooked all afternoon, cooled and served the next day. It was still a lot of work. I suspect serving hot would have been easier, but, that was how the church did it.
