Did a pork roast for 20+ a couple weeks ago.

The wife of the guy who’s farm we did it at is Ukrainian and she was stressed out because when they do a party, they supply all the food and booze. I told her that we were doing potluck and all she had to supply was paper plates and plastic knives and forks. She still stressed and bought a couple extra salads the day before.

The day of the roast I had it timed down to the minute. Everything came together perfectly. Once everyone was sitting down and eating I saw her literally chill right out and enjoy herself. The next day she said “Let’s do it again!”, so we’re going to plan one for next June again.

500+ Church fundraiser. Several years in a row.

Three of us were the Head chefs. I did all the TriTips.

Doesn't include the BBQ both at the three day Church Festival. That probably was several thousand over three days.


Maybe we're all happy.

About 400 at a camp I worked for in the mid-1970s. We did virtually everything from scratch, including bread. You haven't lived until you've made 80 loaves of bread at one sitting.

Cooked 350 ribeyes 2 days in a row a couple years ago. No hair left on my arms after the first few hours. We cook for a couple hundred several times a year. Had a job for 800 people a couple months ago but Covid took that and the $10K that went with it.

2003 RAGBRAI (Registers annual great bike ride across Iowa) came thru our town, about 10,000 riders. Our Lions Club had a food booth.

I turned 72 lbs. of dry batter mix into pancakes. One person was mixing batter and filling the dispenser, I dropped the cakes one at a time on three grills, 36 per batch. Turn 36 and then put on trays for the servers. Drop, turn, tray, non-stop for 3 hours. That was a lot of panckes!

Other grills did 130 dozen eggs, I don't remember how much sausage and ham we served. We ran out of breakfast food by 9:30 am. A good fund-raiser!

Used to make 100 loaves................a minute.................but it was all mechanized.

Still, loading 20 pans, 5 loaves to a pan + the weight of the pan, a minute into the oven was quite the workout.

80 loaves from scratch, by hand, might be harder than what I had to do!

as far as feeding folks, pancake breakfasts with Scouts/Explorers to fund our backpacking trips probably few +/- 200 breakfasts?
