I'll start with the overall plan:
Party is June 14th at a large park shelter. We expect 31 adults and 27 kids (ages 0-14). All family!! Lol!
Party starts a noon and will probably last until dark so I expect people to eat twice while there.
Buns for sandwiches
Taco stuff for "authentic" tacos (corn tortillas, Pico de galo, onions, cilantro, salsa
Trying to keep it simple to ease the stress. I've never cooked for so many people and I'm still new to smoking smoking so I'm not sure exactly how to do the meat. I would like to do all the smoking the day before then just keep It warm in the smoker the day of the party. Is it ok to refrigerate the meat after it rests then just reheat It the next day?
Also I'm planning 40lbs of shoulder (before cooking) and 20lbs whole chicken (before cooking). I'd rather have leftover that I can freeze than to run out.
Please let me know what you think! I'd like to hear all ideas and suggestions.
Thanks in advance all!
