Last year I picked up a company Christmas party for a local car dealership (125 ppl or so), brisket and sausage only. I was able to cook several extra briskets on the side and had them pre sold before the cook even started (about 10).
I made a good little chunk of change off that cook and when I was working this years 4th of Juy cook the president of the car dealership told me to keep the 2nd sat in Dec. for this years party.
Yesterday I was approched by the pres of the water district association to do the cook for their association Christmas party on the thursday before the car dealership (125 ppl), brisket, sausage, beans, potato salad, pickles/peppers, bread and dessert.
Since I have room for 27 full packers on the DPP 70,

I should be able to pre-sell a buttload of extra briskets for the holidays plus the bucks I make off of the catering.
Sorry to post this so far in advance of the event, but I was excited that I picked up the extra gig and get to do all the cooking @ one time.
Looks like it will be a SWEET Christmas in the dog's house this year.

Doug -
Will you cook your biskets all at once? What do you do with the briskets for Saturday that you cook on Thursday?
How do you keep them? How do you reheat them on Saturday?
BTW - Great job on the gigs and congratualations!
Mobile BBQ is wide open in my area and I have been considering getting into it myself. Just need to learn the tricks and the secrets.

S.O.

Here is a link to the info http://www.lubbockchamber.com/giant_side_bbq.htm
I am doing this strictly as a P.R. thing for my wifes hotel in Lubbock, they are sponsering me and buying the meat to cook for 50-100 ppl. Prizes are trophy and braggin' rights. The Chamber has a pretty good relationship with her hotel so she wanted me to make a show of it.
I know you have some business intrests down here so if you are able to make it down here Sept. 24-25 you are more than welcome to come out and help, eat or just hang out.
