Bbq wedding for 150-175
We have someone smoking brisket, turkey and chicken. I'm planning to serve Caesar salad, beans, coleslaw, roll, watermelon and there will be a buffet of pies, brownies and crisps. I'm a bit lost on portions and how much to make. I'd like to use fresh romain bunches for the salad.
Hi, Julie, if you might have 175, plan for 175. Leftovers are better than running out.
Have a crock pot of vegetarian sausages for any non meat eaters. I like Field Roast.

Caesar salad, 1 1\2 times the amount for 100 on the plan for 100 page
beans, 5 gallons, 7 #10 cans, have a pot of meatless for non-pork eaters
coleslaw, 4 1/2 gallons
roll, 20 pounds
pickles 1 1/2 gallons
sliced onions, 12 pounds
table sauce 1 quart per 30
watermelon, 1/2 pound per person

buffet of pies, brownies and crisps.
See the dessert planning page for help with the amounts
