You probably didn’t want to hear comments discouraging you from going forth with this but I can bet you you will get similar replies even if went on BBQ Brethren, for instance.

We've cooked for 175 which is still a long ways from 225. Sometimes the menu has to match the abilities of the kitchen and the cook. We wouldn't attempt smashed or mashed potatoes but maybe some sort of cheesy potatoes, maybe a church/funeral casserole type dish that bakes and stays warm in a commercial oven during those last hectic minutes and it can be thrown together in minutes. (We'll have the potato recipe in about 6 weeks for 45 people). The same with the ribs... adjust the method a little. We would do them in oven the day before, get them into safe keeping in a refrigeration unit of some sort and just worry about the final sizzling the day of and they can be stacked on the grill after they reach perfection. Take care with the beans to insure they are completely cooled before storing if cooked the day before. A big pot of beans not stirred will sour in the interior if they stay warm. Food shouldn't stand around warmish for more than an hour or so. The chicken should cook pretty fast if they are open up/split. Good luck. Maybe make smaller test versions before the event.

I think we scared OP away. He came to ask for help instead we told him/her to quit.

Not nice.

I know it's harsh, but the reality is, the OP would have gotten similar comments even had he gone to 'Catering, Vending, and Cooking for the Masses' subforum over at another BBQ discussion forum.
At least he also got some good, constructive advice here.

We didn't scare him away.

According to his profile, he (or she) made the original post and didn't even stick around to read anything posted.

Always annoying although it happens often.

Kayelle, they might have read the posts without logging in.

Nah, I didn't think so either...

That’s for sure.
