Default Building 200 or so chopped beef sandwiches

I have been volunteered to cook a bunch of briskets to be used for chopped beef sandwiches for my kids elementary school carnival. (Got to love the wife!!). We (volunteer Dads) are hoping to sell 200 or more sandwiches. All proceeds go to the school for various projects.

I'm thinking to allocate between 1/4 and 1/3 pound of cooked chopped beef per sandwich. Is there a convienient utinsile that would be good to "scoop" out just the right, uniform amount of chopped beef? I was thinking of something like an ice cream scoop, but that is too small.

I would also like to use a thin sauce to put on the sandwiches rather than a thick one. I was thinking of using Cattleman's or KC Masterpiece and thinning it down a bit with water and/or vinegar. I think the kids and adults would like either of those sauces.

I am planning on using just basic "Del Dixie" type thin sliced dill pickles and 1015 (or similar) sweet onions for those that want it.

Sam's has got pre cut foil sheets that I might use to wrap them in. Or maybe they sell some sandwich wraps that are just for that purpose.

We may include a small handfull of "bulk" potatoe chips with them, all served on a cheapo paper plate.

We are going to have different shifts of volunteers so I was hoping to set up a real simple and easy way to build a sandwich quickly.

Any ideas an input would be greatly appreciated!!!

You can buy various sized dishers (ice cream scoops) from a restaraunt supply. So that should be easy to figure out.

I used to do some festivals and the big scare was always foul weather and what the hell to do with unsold product (operating at a loss). Since this is for charity I am sure that it will not cost you a loss, but you should have a foul weather contingency plan (lots of freezer space).

Acemart.com, I know there is at least one location in Houston, for the scoop.

Look for a #40 scoop - it'll be close to 1/4 pound per scoop. Like the other guys said, check out a restaurant supply store (I use GFS/Smar & Final) for stuff like this, too.
