Default Catering for a birthday party.

Howdy folks...


I just got back from a catering for a co-workers girlfriends 30th. birthday.
Cooked some Barbebecue for more than 80 People and i gotta say the whole thingy incl. shopping, preparing, transport, cooking, serving and cleaning up is a major P.I.T.A. Respect to those who do this for a living.
I think i got a good smoke ring on me now.

Heres ther Menue :

-45 Racks of Loin Ribs
-35 Pounds of Pork Loin, 3 ways : BBQ-Rub and Bourbon Marinated/ Olive Oil, Garlic, Oregano, Rosemary, Salt and Pepper marinade / stuffed with dried apples wich were seasonded with allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and honey and then glazed with apple jelly/TRhai chili lime Juice mixture
-13 Pounds of pork butt roast with texasbbqrub
-40 Bratwurst rolls ( Bratwurst basted with maple syrup served in a flour tortilla with grilled pineapple, ruccola and a honey-mustard sauce
-3 beer can chicks for the show
-2 honey cornbreads cooked in the dutch oven
-6 olive breads cooked on a stone in the firebox
-a ****load of french fries
-Jacks Peachy bbq beans ( winner !)
-2,5 Pounds of chipotle Butter

The hosts and a couple of guests also brought a lot of salads.

The party was in a industry zone inside an old car repair shop.
Because of heavy wind and rain we moved the smokers inside.
Needless to say that after i loaded em up the sun came out, but i didnt wanna move the loaded cookers. Worked out fine, though.



Here we go.
Wish i could have taken some more detailed pics as a lot of stuff is missing and i´d liked to have more of the buffet but i was just too busy.

Good lookin grub.

Actually i had to take all the booze and beer out af the fridge to keep the food cool. Warm beer...


I got a few foolow up gigs from this catering, looking forward to it very much.
Gonna make a few things different, though. Foiling the ribs was a real pain and mess.

I gotta say, for it being such a PITA, it looks like you did it like a pro.
