  • Re: some advise needed

    you can do this......your cooking for your 27 employees, which means you are either a manager or an owner of a business.....therefore, you know how to manage and plan and that's all you need.  I have done many cooks like this and here is some humble advice I can offer;

    1)  dont drink......stay focused on the task at hand.

    2)  have all of your rubs and sauces made in advance.

    3)  make sure you use plenty of lump so there is no chance of running out during the cook.

    4)  give yourself some "pad time", which appears you have from the post above.......because a cooler, some foil and a towel are you best

    5)  make sure you keep your temps consistent during the cook to allow proper cook times.

    6)  make sure your family or a couple of trusted employees can be around for all of part of the cook to potentially help with anything you need.

    7)  make sure all of the other "things" that go with setting up a thing like this the day of the event are handled by someone else, such as tables, napkins, plates, drinks dont need to fool with any of that.

    enjoy and watch everyone rant and rave over your FANTASTIC  food.....good luck!  I hope it goes great for you!

    i have the guru and it's an amazing tool for sure…..but really only worth it if you are doing longer cooks (which i do a lot).

    the best thermometer i have ever used is the thermapen… wife got me one of those and it does great.

    i don't do pizza as often as i should but i own the bge pizza stone and shovel thingy and when i do pizza i have no complaints from these devices.
