Default Relay For Life Food

My wife is a co-captain of her office Relay For Life team. I have been doing office lunch bbq fundraisers for the last 2 months. I've done burgers and brats, chicken, ribs, and butt. This Friday is our Relay event, I'm planning on smoking 15 racks of babybacks tomorrow. I'm planning on selling 2 bones and half an ear of corn for $5. We are expecting 500 people at relay, I'll be happy if I can sell to 100. After I pay for food, all money go to the fundraiser.

Lucky you. They don't allow us to sell food from our site at our Relay.

Good luck with your event!

Thanks guys. It should be fun. This will be my biggest feed yet. I've done multiple butts or a few racks for my own parties, biggest public event for sure. I'll get photos and post my feedback.

Ok brethren,
I loaded up my pit with 15 racks- whoo she was full! It was fun moving them around to get even heat. 6-8 hrs on the smoke, trying for 2hrs wrapped- I'll let you know how it turns out tomorrow.

Babybacks up front, Corn on the kettle in back:

We do a PP Sammy and a side of slaw for $5 at our Relay each July. Usually bring in about $200-$300. Thanks for what you do.
