Group cook help!

Well I've really done it this time.  I volunteered to cook the meat for a church Christmas party thinking I'd have about 10-15 people to feed and now I've got about 35 RSVP'd.  I was originally going to do the crown roast out of the holiday guide but with this many people I don't think that's a practical option.  So now I'm looking for another plan of attack.  I'm trying to do something a little more holiday themed so I'd like to stay away from the butt or brisket.  I have access to my large BGE and a Traeger pellet smoker.  What do you guys think?


  • How about maple bourbon glazed ham? I've seen that recipe floating around here recently and it looks gooooood!

    You could still do a crown for presentation but make a few pork tenderloins to actually slice and serve.  You could stuff the crown, but also have that going in casserole dishes.  So have a fun, festive, show stopping holiday platter, and serve all of the components de-constructed.  Another Idea could be to go with individually portioned and individual small cedar planks for cedar plank salmon and still do a pork or beef tenderloin as well.

    I would get a couple of the large pork loins from Costco. They feed a lot of people and I think they cost less than $2/pound. Very tasty.

  • Pork loins are a great idea, you can stuff them too, tends to impress the holiday crowd.
