It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Asked to cater

Our church is having a elders mtg first week of December. They've asked me to prepare the meat. They'll supply it or reimburse me. Two meats for about 15 -20 people. It'll be mostly men, but some will bring their wives.

Could do pork loin and filets?

Chicken and pork butt?

Ribs and chops??

Give me some ideas.

I'll cook everything at home and then transport in tin platters.

  • Just do all of the above, and I think they would ask you to cater events from now on!  All of it sounds great, but the chicken and pork butt sound like the classic choice and budget friendly option for a church gathering. Just my opinion.

    I vote for chicken and pulled pork if its your first time catering. Simple but tasty and you can feed many mouths without breaking the bank. Sides could be mac n cheese and coleslaw? I know its not fancy, but it gets the job done and I bet you people will love the grub.

  • Yea my wife was thinking chicken and pork butt.

    I think that would be safest. Smoke the butt and while it is FTC I can do the chicken!

    Consider making sliders with the pulled pork. I like Hawaiian rolls. When you make the sammiches, fill the meat holding the roll over the pan - you still get a good amount of meat in the sandwich and the extra falls back in to the pan.

    Yeah, I'm frugal like that.

    Pork tenderloin is always good and foolproof. ;;)

    Do you have liability insurance?  One thing that professional caterers have and hope never to need but it is a litigious world.

    I cooked butt and tenderloin for my neighbor's group. Did 8 tenderloin and a butt. Did 4 different types of loin. Whatever you do will be good. I love cooking for other people.

  • I like the suggestion of pulled pork and some pork tenderloins (the pork tenderloin is good on the hawaiin sweet rolls)

    I don't really think a church pot luck supper is the place to stir up a lawsuit, but thanks for the tip.  This is more informal I'm bringing the meat and others will bring sides and dessert.
