Default Can't decide... Brisket, Butt, Ribs, or Chicken...

Doing some smoking for the little one's first birthday this weekend. For about 20 adults and a handfull of kids.

I really wanted to do Brisket. Then I started worrying about not everyone coming may want beef. So maybe a combo of Brisket and Chicken.

Then I thought, you know. It will be a pain in the butt to do both Brisket and Chicken, so maybe I will do pork. Boston Butt is easy. Cheap. Makes a ton and can feed 20 + kids pretty easy.

Then I thought again... I make some darned good ribs if I should say so myself. Maybe I should do ribs instead? But, my horizontal is small (~500 sqin) and I'm not sure I can get enough ribs on there, and I don't like doing ribs on my vertical propane smoker. Most I've done at one time on my horizontal is 6 whole racks of ribs.

Then I go back to maybe doing Ribs and Chicken. Then I'm doing two things again.

I really wish I could make up my mind on what I want to cook. I need to go pick up my meat tonight so I can prep it and possibly start cooking tomorrow for Saturday's lunch.

Whenever I can't decide I just do a little of everything...

This is why you get a vacuum sealer and cook extras everytime...

Ribs for 20 adults can get pricey. I'd do 2 butts or a butt and a brisket.

Ribs get expensive. Butts and Briskets are the way to go.

I'd just get a buncha chicken leg/thighs and some sausage, brats, andouille, polish, maybe a variety.. About the same size as the chicken and ought to please everybody. Should cook in the same amount of time.
Get some skewers for sausage on a stick.

Butt and a Brisket and then you can spend some time with some MOINK balls and ABTs to make everyone happy.

Did you think of going all appetizers? Just a bunch of finger foods, ABT's, MOINKS, wings etc...just another option.
