Occasional Catering

Postby Phred » Tue Aug 16, 2011 5:55 pm

Words out that I like to bbq and I'm getting more requests to cater. Lately I have been catering for groups up to 120. I have prepared pulled pork, brisket and chicken the other day. However my current equipment is just not geared for that many people and it is a lot of work to get everything done. Which Backwoods smoker do you recommend?

If you are going to be doing that much all of the time, either a Professional or a Pro Jr.

I agree with RickC, the Pro Jr. would be the smallest option. I love my competitor, fatboy and party, but they are for competing only.

I'm cooking on a Pro Jr and the capacity is great. I've cooked for up to 400 folks without any problem.
