In a couple of weeks, I am having an anniversary party. I will be serving pulled pork and burgers for approximately 70 adults and 30 (varied ages) children. This is a bring a dish to pass set up. How many pounds of bone-in pork butt roasts and burgers will I need? Also, the bbq sauce will be on the side - how much will I need of that? Finally, how many buns do you recommend I provide? Thanking you in advance!

Slider buns would be a good choice, at least for the pork, possible also for little burgers. 5 large buns per 4 or 10-12 slider buns per 4

pounds of bone-in pork butt roasts, about 25 pounds
burgers, about 60
bbq sauce, 6 quarts

I do 1 burger plus 1 dog per person, and don't cook all the dogs until I see how they are going. Condiments on the sandwich page.

I'm having a simple bbq for my daughter's engagement party. 45 people with chicken thighs and legs, tri-tip,
Corn on the cob, salad, french bread, and watermelon wedges. Can you help me to figure how much boneless chicken thighs to get? Legs? And tri- tip?
Thank you so much.

If you have tri-tip, most people will want that and many will have a piece of chicken, too. Allow 2 pounds raw tri-tip per 5 plus 1 piece chicken per person. (1 quarter per 2, cut apart after cooking).

Not necessary to do boneless, unless the chicken recipe calls for it.

Slider buns would be a good choice, at least for the pork, possible also for little burgers. 5 large buns per 4 or 10-12 slider buns per 4

pounds of bone-in pork butt roasts, about 25 pounds
burgers, about 60
