I am having a luncheon for about 30 people. How many pounds of Kielbasa and sauerkraut should I prepare. It would be for sandwiches. I plans on making a smaller dish of hotdogs and sauerkraut for the pickier children/adults. There will be plenty of appetizers and side dishes, but this will be the main dish.

I would do 1 pound kielbabsa per 4-5 (1 full sausage) plus about 10% extra (the hot dogs could cover this) plus 1/4 cup sauerkraut per person.

For groups that don't eat lots of sauerkraut, a quart would be plenty. For people who eat plenty, or as a mainstay of the menu, double that!

3 Meats for 100
Mary,

chicken,
pit beef
Italian sausage,
Beef is likely to be preferred, and I would have someone serve the first round of beef, placing both the chicken and sausage ahead on the buffet. People eat more meat when there are several choices, often some of each.

8 whole chickens in 8 pieces
5 pounds sausage, in pieces, equal weights onions and peppers
35 pounds boneless round for the pit beef, slice very thin

Don't forget the Tiger Sauce!

If this is the main course and buffet/ self serve for a mixed crowd, allow 1 1/2 per person. All men or teens, 2 per person. Have one labeled dish of veggie sausage; I like Field Sausage brand.

how much sausage for 100 people and I will be serving brisket also and other sides
ellen

Allow about 1 pound for every 5 people. It depends on the amounts of brisket. Because it shrinks more than most cuts, I suggest 1 pound raw per 2 people.

How much krault to feed 40

ellen

Most people only take 1/3 cup. 13 cups, or 3 1/2 quarts is good for your 40 people. With a gallon you will likely have some left. Serve with tongs.
