Cook Talk

Family Reunion
Hello Ellen, I would like to know how many pounds of meat do I need for aprox. 200 people. Cooking ribs, bone in chicken, hot dogs and links. Also having potato salad, beans, corn, mac and cheese and bread.
ribs, 1/2 pound per person
bone in chicken, 1 piece per person (8 pieces per chicken)
hot dogs, consider skipping, any kid who will eat a hotdog will eat a chicken leg...
links, 1 pound per 5-6

Consider having 2 packages of veggie patties or links for any vegetarians, there will be some.

Consider adding slaw (2 1/2 gallons per 100) or a green salad (do 1 1/2 times the amount for 100) to lighten the menu a bit.

If this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation, maybe a nickel or dime per guest, to support this site. Thank you.
