Cook Idea ?

I am hosting a party for 45 people and planning on doing pulled pork (its easy and cheap ) . Some of the people dont eat pork so i am thinking of doing something else .
Anyone have any thoughts ?  I am thinking something semi cheap and easy .

thanks

    Don't know the timing, but I'd think about doing a bunch of spatchcock chickens and using it for a chicken salad. This could be done a day or two in advance and you'll still be able to use sandwich rolls for that too.

    Spatchcock chicken, could put it on top of the pork so the pork dont drop on it.

    Chicken thighs and beef sausage.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    Spatchcock chicken makes a delicious chicken salad!

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    You can go spatchcock with a turkey or this; which I did last year at Thanksgiving and it turned out great!

    Be different.  Perhaps some fancy wine and tree rat.

    Chicken thighs or legs. Still cold? Chili. The smoked salad is good. Oversmoke the chicken with hickory...A lot of smoke.

    I process the chicken
    Mayo
    Quarter red grapes
    Peach cut the same size
    Loveless Cafe Peach rub
    Salt if needed
    I add pecans but you never know who's allergic
    Hawaiian rolls or croissant

    Pulled beef is great, but harder to do. It can be hard to get parts of the sholder clod, such as the chuck, to be tender. Some braising or foiling helps.

    Dark meat turkey works very well w. smoke, and slow cook. Some people cook turkey wing sections, the portion w. 2 bones, as "turkey ribs." If I can find them, turkey thighs turn out really well smoked, and are good sliced thin for sammys.

    I need something that is easy , Beef may be a bit to complicated .

    thanks

    This for a bar mizvah?

    I agree with Cazzy - chicken thighs and beef sausage.  Marinate the chicken, I like the boneless, skinless thighs, they're real easy to cook.

    What about some fajitas, easy to do. Or a big batch of wangs.

    Fajita bar is a great idea.

    Pulled beef is really good. The cook is a little different than pulled pork toward the end.
