catering for 70 people, how many briskets and ribs.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

hi there guys, well im trying to make a quote to one of my friends. He wants me to cook briskets and ribs for 65-70 people. Normally the briskets that we get here are about 9lb and the ribs are St. Louis without too much meat. I was thinking taht maybe 4 briskets and 20 ribs. Of course i will provide also beans, potato salad and coleslaw.

That is roughly 4oz of Brisket and 3 Ribs per person with some extra. Short of a party of 70 Men, that should be plenty...JJ

That's quite a challenge, have never cooked for more than 15 family/office members.  I would increase those numbers, like Chef said it depends if you are cooking for a bunch of men.  I would want atleast a 1/2 lb of brisket, weighed after cooking.  For a recent office cookout I planned 1 lb of brisket per person (plus sides) and they ate everything with no brisket left over.
