How old are the kids? 15 - 18 year olds will eat a lot more than 5 - 6 year olds.

Re: How much chickin's

I'm not sure I was goin' to "assume" 15 to 20 yrs? I don't have a clue tho. I'm not sure she does either. I'm cookin' for someone else who is in charge and I need to get her a figure. Gonna cook n' pull it for free or for very cheap because of the cause.

Re: How much chickin's

3 cases (12 head) of 3lb birds should do it.
Is there any way you could change her mind as far as pulled chicken? Pain in the butt man. Did a festival over the weekend and served it. Pulling chicken sucks! (This is what my sous chef said)
Good cause tho' and good luck.

Ya, that aint no lie. Pullin' chickins does suck (no jokes please ha!). I use to have to pull 2 cases at a time and that was bs. haha!

Not sure if there is an alternative with her. Her email specified "pulled".

You smoking said chix? Get some boneless thighs and breasts. Might be cheaper and less work. Pull those. Put them in pans with a little chicken stock and reheat.

Re: How much chickin's

Somebody offer to feed me chicken best have at least a half one. Hot dawgs and brats be the way to fly. Pulled chicken just sounds nasty. Ranks right up there with Snake Farm..Smothered in underwear etc.

Great idea! Most likely take that route! Thanks!
