James, when you have a 6 hour party, most people eat twice, or at least 1 1/2, for example, a plate first and a sandwich later.

If the kids are under 12, count as 1/2, if at or over, as adult.

1 pound raw well trimmed brisket per 2-3 (I go two, it shrinks a lot, and this is a long party); 1 pound sausage per 4-5; 63 pound party mix per meal for 50; other items are all covered on the plan for 100 list.

See the sandwich page for help on condiments and relishes.

That was supposed to be 3 pounds party mix per meal for 50.
