Catered a party for 950 in a parking lot. Fed them all in 45 minutes through two double sided buffet lines! That was a long day!!!!
If that party consisted of anything more than tuna sandwiches you deserve a Nobel Prize! Hell, I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
We had a flat bed trailer custom built into a BBQ Grill with an elevated walkway all the way around it. Took 80 bags of charcoal to get her started. Did whole top rounds, pork loins, legs of lamb, even grilled garlic bread on that bad boy!
David this sounds almost like the "Dinner Impossible"...........but, everything is possible if it is organized well.........I know I could not do it..........
I do the same sort of thing as Dave only my numbers can range as high as 5000 and as low as 2. I have a few annual gigs that run at about 2500. We do a community bbq that gets up to 5K. We have to rent circus tents. Mostly though my bread and butter gigs run between 50 and 100 guests. Catering's not for sissies.
It's damn hard work...we just finished up our summer wedding/catering season and I am whopped!
