Is it enough?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I apologize if this is in the wrong section but I am talking baby backs. Doing a party for the 4th. 18-20 adults and around 6 kids. Appetizers will be out all day then plan on doing a brisket 16# raw weight and 6 racks of baby backs with several sides and also hot dogs for the kids. I think that is enough ribs my wife said no what do you folks think? I figure 1/3 rack per person should be good. Thanks in advance for your input.

That's sounds about right but why not St. Louis? A little more meat.

We already had most of the baby backs in the freezer.

If the STAR of the show is going to be ribs with a side note of brisket, then no; you don't have enuff ribs.  If you are trying to feed folks a good smoked meal with a tasty treat of some sweet smokey ribs, then yes; you have plenty of ribs.  Are you serving or are you doing cafeteria style?  If cafeteria, folks MAY grab more ribs than brisket ( although I don't know why ).  There is plenty of food there for 18-20 folks.  Be sure to let us know how it goes and add a few Q-view.  Keep Smokin!

If the BBs are good sized then it should be plenty considering the brisket.  Down here they vary between a little over 2 lbs to 3 1/2 lbs.  Just depends on what size of pig people are sending to market.

Thanks to everyone for the help. Party went great, we had 24 adults and out of the 7 racks of bb's we only had 5 ribs left. Perfect.
