Just did paypal for two people, others might tag along with us but they will have to confirm when they have a better handle on their schedule. 

 

My heart goes out to you for putting together an event not knowing if 10 or 80 people will show up.  Not enough food and it's a rush to get more or too much food and the money collected doesn't cover the overhead.  Hopefully the I'm going to attend headcount matches the turnout.....just a month to go!

Thanks.  Got your Paypal.    

 

Based on past turnouts on nice days, the headcount should be roughly 25-30ppl.      The weather plays a big role in this...if it's nice, It's easy to plan for.    Even though we have a covered pavilion and I have tentage, If it's crappy out then some people will fall away.      In the days before the party, I can hopefully adjust based on the weather report.    The actual shopping spree occurs the day before, so I'm able to roll with the ever-changing stories and weather related adjustments.        But whatever food I bring is usually it...there shouldn't be a need for a last minute shopping spree (but it could happen if necessary).       The last few times I did this, it worked out reasonably well though....there was enough food, no heroics needed, everyone seemed to enjoy it, and I didn't take a significant beating.   

 

C U THERE and thanks!!

Hello Eddie,

 

Payment finally sent. Sorry for the delay! Cannot wait!

Sadly Beany will not be making it this year, her niece planned a wedding shower that same day :(  Just Benji and I this year.

Can't wait to see everyone! Can't wait to enjoy the eats!!!

HA!    I like how you think.    We'll see.      This might be the perfect place to debut a mid sized grill I bought not long ago.     I kept getting asked to run small headcount events for 10-15 people, without the trailer.   (Ex; Tailgate parties at Giants stadium).     I had small tailgater grills which were good for 4 or 5 people, and massive commercial grills that could feed an army, but nothing in the middle.  So I bought a mid sized grill....and have yet to use it.    I always wondered how it would do.

27 Days and counting.     :-)

 

I broke out the old boardie picnic folders over the weekend, and I started the new folder.    For recurring gigs such as this, I keep fairly accurate notes on headcount/prior menu/quantities used.   It's helpful to keep spending in check, as I'm prone to some seriously stupid over-purchasing.     For larger headcount gigs in the middle of the season, it's not such a problem as the expensive stuff can be reutlized.    But for the smaller gigs, overblowing quantities is expensive and never helpful.

 

Anyway, ramping up for it.           Looking forward to it.

Last year, we were like 16 boardies (not counting offspring) and about 10 of my local friends.       Bring 'em on!

while we aren't able to make it, can i suggest Diddy's family lamb recipe?  we made it for Passover on the grill and ZOMG SO DERICIOUS!!!

 

4 - 5 lb leg of lamb, de-boned & butterflied - marinated overnight in honey, soy sauce, and garlic (Diddy thinks a 12 hour marinade might be better - i'm not sure i agree there, i like the FLAVAHS to seep in)...

 

toss on the grill and cook about 4 min on each side until you get a nice crisp sear - then cook on low, covered, around 300 degrees for about 1/2 hour until internal temp reaches 125 degrees.

 

HOLY NOMS!

 

sorry to be missing this one!

Would be wonderful to have an extra set of hands in the AM.   An Hour long spike of heavly lifting activity.       I have a king cooker and will try to bring something to heat water with..     I'm not sure how well I'll do with coffee support in general though.   If just one or two people, might be better off with a Dunkin Donuts jug or something.
