Default Most amount of food cooked

Watching and reading the traffic here, two questions come to mind:

1 - How much food have each of us cooked in a single session (ie, from the time the heat-source goes on, until the heat source is intentionally extinguished)?

and

2 - How much food have we had actually over heat and cooking at one time?

I think my personal best for both is 40+ lbs of ribs and wings one weekend this past summer (courtesy of Darth Smoker), but from the pictures I've seen, that's a week-day cook for some of y'all. So let's hear it, whether catering, family reunions, whatever...

I am so picturing the fruits of 1.5 birds scattered amongst the butts and briskets

Last year we cooked three 280lb hogs in one go. Had to use three cookers.

Other than that I've had about 150 chicken thighs in the cooker, and in January I have to cook about 200 pounds of pork butts.

I cooked a hundred pounds of butts and four pans of beans for 125 people this past summer. Typical cook will be two butts, six racks of ribs, two to three chickens

Personally,

10 briskets for 300 people on a chargriller, a meco water smoker and the oven for cooking after they were foiled.

As a group,

The CBBQA cooked 350 briskets, several cases of chicken and an untold amount of hot dogs and hamburger for 10000 troops and their families at the 29 Palms Marine Corp base.

Jeff (Bubba and Jeff) and I cooked 54 Pork Butts and 36 slabs of ribs at one time about a month or so ago. The cooker still wasn't full. I don't want to pull that many butts at one time ever again unless I got a Buffalo Chopper. (Big Puss Mod.)
