Do pulled pork, and slaw. 3 oz of pork. 1/2 Oz of slaw on a kisser roll. Some will take more, some less. I'd go $8.00 a head. (min.) $10.00 per head if I could get it. Get yourself a 3oz scoop. It's about 4 ounces when your slamming out a sandwich. Goofy scoops are your best friend.

Portion control will be very important as well as plenty of staff. When you have enough people, have that same amount on stand-by.

Sounds like alot of work.....and alot of fun. Good luck!

I had to turn it down. They wanted 3 meats a few sides, drink stations and alot of other requests. I just don't have the refrigeration for a gig that big yet. I will be going to the gig to see how someone else pulls it off tho. I cant wait to see that.
