Default Had my hands full.

Cooking 172 chichen halves (about 400lbs) in two + loads on the Hell Fire Grill. Also reheated about 80 racks of BBs on the grill. I started the fire at 6am and finished cooking about 12:30 for a 12:30 serve time. Not many pics but heres what I got.
Heated up and ready to cook.

First load.

Second load.

Third load ready to come out.

A little grill smoke action.

They were expecting 600 people. I never took time to go see the crowd but the waitresses told me it was huge.

That is awesome, what a great set-up. When cooking that many, do you go by time, temp or feel?

Nice cook neighbor. Let me know next time you're cooking for the general public and I'll make it a point to drop by.

I got hired, by a caterer, to cook for some folks that haul garbage at alderbrook park this time but if any thing else comes up I'll give ya a haller. Its a nice big private park, I wish I had the time to get some more pics of the shindig.

Thanks for the complements all.

Looks great, what did you use to keep the first and second loads warm while waiting to serve?

I've lived in the area for over 12 years and about 3 miles from Alderwood. Been there exactly once the whole time...

Nice set up you got; I'm surprised I haven't seen it around. I guess I gotta get out more often.

Yes. They have a complete commercial kitchen.

I mostly cook stuff for friends, for beer and invites to parties. I made a pretty penny on this one though. Actually my second payed event. I made almost 1/4 of what it cost to build Hell Fire Grill on this cook.
