I will be catering my first wedding reception at the end of March. Yikes! Service for 80. I really have no idea how I got into this. It is a case of one little innocent "yes" turning into a whole lot more than I initially thought.
I know they want Ribs & chicken. I have done hundreds of ribs and spatchcocked chickens in the past, so I don't think that will be too much of a problem. I have 2 large eggs to use as well as a large homemade smoker that I was planning on using as an oversized warming oven.
Now the problem: Sides! I didn't know I had to do sides! I first thought I could just do standard bbq sides (potato salad, cole slaw, beans), but now I just found out that they don't want "bbq sides that they could pick up at any bbq joint". ohh no. any ideas for some side dishes that I might could do for this thing? It really seems to me that it is going to have to be something that I could pre-cook, because I am going to have my hands full of chicken and ribs leading up to the wedding.
Please feel free to submit any of your ideas. Thanks a ton guys.
