I concur with Ed, Orfy. At that volume and budget you want something that isn't going to eat up your grill space and be low cost. A big aluminum tray of pulled pork is a great idea, and about half the volume of the food comes from the rolls which you don't have to put any effort into. You'll be able to plate up easy and fast.

Yeah chicken would have to only be finished on the grill as you say. Ribs are out of the question for that size crowd and grill. Even burgers are going to give you back up, I guess it all depends on how fast you want to get everyone served up.

Ooh I know...Brisket man. You could get a few really nice size Briskets on there. Add some smoke to the grill somehow, paper thin slice (yeah a prep phase, but if you aren't plating...). Serve it on rolls with maybe some onion, jalapeno slice...etc.

Ribs can be a pain in the arse unless you will have help prepping them (removing the membrane off the inside) Can you give us some idea of equipment or how much input you have to the meats being served?

Missed this, yeah I second the Brisket.

I've grilled for 100 before. The only thing that was able to meet demand were the hot dogs (good ol' fashioned American frankfurters!) I was on a little backyard bbq and kept loading the grill up with dozens of dogs and they cook quickly.

I fit burgers in where I could, but there was always a back log on the burgers.

Dogs or sausages would probably be the easiest way to go, for you especially!

Well the BBQ was set for 2PM and it started raining about 12pm and didn't stop.
We had a meet to a 10am to decide. I swayed the vote to go ahead and decided to cater for hundred instead of 200.

I lit at 10.30
11 am put on a full leg of goat
12 I put on a tray of peppered potatoes for roasting.
followed by
50 chicken portions (microwaved to start them)
50 brats
50 burgers
2 sides of salmon
10 mackerel
5 butter nut squash
8 sweet potatoes
1 pan of onions cooked in the chicken stock

Popcorn
chocolate sauce and toasted marsh mellows.

1 gallon of HB fruit wine and a keg of Hobgoblin.

It's a pretty good forum, but I had a mishap while updating my personal info and now my password doesn't work!


If you like guns then we're 3 for 3!
I'm a Weber Smoky Mountain Smoker guy myself, check this out: http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/ This is an awesome site, full of like-minded engineer-type folks who love to tweak their grills. There are actually pro BBQ teams who just use a couple of these and do very well.

I really like the BGE, but couldn't justify the cost (You could buy 2 WSM's for 1 BGE). Ed- Out of curiosity, what size BGE's are you working with? Definitely a sweet setup!

DUDE! I am SO making these! I have buckets of jalepenos coming into season in the garden...can't let them go to waste.

Man! This forum is like crack! I come here for beer, and end up fueling my other obsession; barbeque!
