Party for 80
Hoping that I can get an estimate of how many lbs of meat I should get! I will be serving three different meat items and 3 different sides, the meats will be smoked brisket, bbq chicken leg quarters and bbq pulled pork sandwiches. With the sides being Mac & Cheese, coleslaw and scalloped potatoes. Your reply will be greatly appreciated, thanks!!
40 quarters, some cut into pieces; 25 pounds raw trimmed brisket; 12 pounds raw pork. You may have some chicken left.
