Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

My father just retired, and we're throwing him a party in a couple weeks. I'm in charge of providing the bbq and the slaw. There are 30 people attending, so at 1/3 lb per person, that puts me at two 8lb butts. I'll be doing three. ;) Why not, right?

Anyway, my question for you partiers and caterers out there is, how do you determine side dish sizes for a party? The sides will be baked beans, potato salad and slaw. Any idea how much slaw to make?
