    Default My first catering event...

    Went over without a hitch! We cooked briskets, butts, beans, potato salad, corn on the cob and sheet cake. Everything got rave reviews except the potato salad, which was store bought. I need a potato salad recipe bad! I was more nervous than at a contest! Was great to see everyone enjoyed the food.

    I do need help with the potato salad though!

    How many did ya feed Mike?

    I was think'n Tim(okie) or Jim(bybbq) had a good one. Also check bbq pit boys, food network, etc to come up w/something good. Gonna take practice, but that is the fun of it.

    Congrats on a job well done!


    Pics?

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    I do have a kick a$$ tater salad recipe ( or hould I say the Okette does), but it i not cheap, and i a lot of work to make. I don't think it is likely a good commercial recipe.

    It is what I want when I want tater salad though.

    Have you tried the Reser' deviled egg tater salad? It's pretty good for factory made, and it's fairly cheap too.

    did you try Lance's recipe? He said he get rave reviews on it.

    I did make a little money, and I mean little. But I did have to buy a lot of things I will not have to buy again. The potato salad is what Lance said he uses for catering....

    Looking for a potato salad recipe, I would look in here. John Folse understands real food and how to eat!
