Help!!! Dinner for 12 to 20 that will sit from 3 to 7 hours

I am looking for some suggestions beyond Pulled Pork or Brisket.    A couple of times each summer I do Dinner for 12 to 20 people at a freinds lake cabin or at my mom's house.   Both are 2 hours from my house.    I have been doing pulled pork or brisket but I get tired of cooking the same thing.    Can anyone suggest something that I can cook here, leave the house around 9am and that will sit well for Supper at 5 or 6pm.

  • I've been kicking around the idea of doing a whole suckling pig. I used the dreaded search function and found threads using both a large and an XL.

    Chicken and Beef fajitas?  Cook and reheat?
    Thanks, Mike "Live in such a way that if anyone should speak badly of you, no one will believe it."
  • Holding something for that long is difficult.  Sounds like you need a small egg to load up and take with you and cook there.  Then you could cook a bunch of marinated pork tenderloins, and serve hot on the sweet hawaiin rolls.

    I was thinking a smaller egg.    Can you talk to my wife?

    That would not fly with the wife but I like the thought.

    Boneless, skinless thighs? You can keep cold and bring to room temp. I use a rub of 2 part sage to 1 part rosemary, 1 thyme and 1.5 salt with a few grinds of pepper. Steep in olive oil to make a slurry. Cook flat at 400 direct about 3 minutes a side. Fantastic.

    I did for more than that a few months ago. Very easy. Naked Ham and spatchcocked turkey. Got the bases covered with very easy cooks.
