Default Portion Size Three Meat Plate

Hey Brethren- first time posting, love the insight and community here.

For a three meat plate of brisket, pork ribs, and sausage, what would you all recommend for each meat? Trying to estimate the needs for a bbq plate fundraiser.

That will depend on sell price, cost and budget.

Key word is "fundraiser". I've done too many of these. First consideration is most will expect a heaping plate for their donation and forget its to generate money for the group. Based on that I'd usually plan on 3-4 ribs, 6-8 oz brisket and 4-6 oz sausage. Hopefully you are having this served or the hogs will clean you out in a hurry. I hated when the group didn't want to set a price based on fair market prices. Some wanted a freewill donation then bitched that they hardly covered food cost. I had to empathize it's a fund raiser not a friend maker and portion control was a must.
