Default How many invitees question

Next Friday I will be cooking 2 butts, 2 15lb briskets, 9 racks of St Louis spares, and about 10 chicken breasts for a party at a friends house. It is not a catering event, just a friendly get together. Based on this qty of food, how many people would you be comfortable inviting? There will also be chicken wings, beans, slaw, and dessert as well.

Thank you,
Allen

50-60 souls probably w/leftovers, unless the party is for a HS football team

I would may be bump to 75. You have enough brisket for 48, 5oz servings. Depending on how large the butts are, along with the wings and breast you will have quite a bit of food.

There is enough there to feed 100, if you invite 90 then 70-80 will show up and you would be fine even if all 90 show up.
