Hi. We are hosting a party for 35 people (29 adults, 6 toddlers). The party starts at 5pm so we will be serving a buffet dinner. My husband wants to smoke tri tip and chickens. How much meat should I buy? I'd also appreciate a tip on how many sides (and portion size). Thank you!

Have 3 sides; 2/3 cup potato salad, 1/2 cup each slaw or salad and beans or other veg.

Have good bread- 4 pounds, 1-2 pounds butter or spreads.

Have a couple or three of appetizers.

Smoke about 15 pounds tri-tip- everyone loves it and it will shrink.

4 or 5 3 pound chickens, cut into 8 pieces after cooking. 4 is enough unless some are big eaters.
