Reunion cook question..

The first weekend of August, Ill be in Va. doing a cook for my wifes family reunion. Im guessing we'll be feeding between 30 and 40 folks (maby more, but no less). Im doing a few butts, a brisket and ribs (we'll be there almost a week so leftovers will be required). My brother in law will be doing a garbage can turkey and there will be tons of sides..Im good on the brisket and butt, but with that amount of food/people, how many ribs would you guys do. I am planning on cutting them into 1 bone servings...

With two or three kinds of meat I would do 4 people per rack. I found that people usually pile up the pork and brisket and just nibble on the ribs.

What part of VA will you be in? I live in Central VA.

Just cook double your usual, and you should be fine
We didn't get our invitation... wasn't something said about being just like family? :fam:
I guess I don't have to tell you, but don't forget the pics!
have fun and let us know once you've recovered and are ready to cook (or just eat) again.... we'll have to get together.
