Default Elks BBQ

As in a previous post - I mentioned I'm doing a BBQ for the local Elks Club next Friday serving pulled pork sammies and bbq chicken.

They expect between 30-50 people. Broad span, I know. But they say - when the food runs out - their out.

Each guest would choose either a pork sandwich w/cole slaw and beans or 1/4 chicken w/slaw and beans.

I was originally thinking 3 butts and 10 whole chickens cut into quarters. But now I'm thinking it should only be 2 butts and 6 birds. What do you experts think???

That makes it 3 Butts and 5 whole chickens.

I do 4oz serving spoon of sides (Beans and Slaw) and figure 100% for 2 sides. I use a full pan is 50 4oz servings (200oz). I would make up a full pan of beans and a full pan of slaw.
