Ribs For 15 People

My grandson has turned 18 and we are having a get together on Sunday.
He wants ribs.
We expect about 15 people and I have no idea how many St.Louis style racks I will need.
3-4 ribs per person. The Costco ribs are very meaty, but don't want to make less than we will need.
They come 3 racks per package. I am assuming at least two packs?

Wow, that's a heap of ribs RB! I always go for more than needed and I can imagine an 18 yr old boy eating half a rack if I remember correctly. How do you plan on cooking them?

If you’re feeding 18 year old boys buy a lot. Also it depends on what else you’re serving. More appys and sides cuts into the rib consumption.

Buy twice as much as you think you'll need.

Sounds like good advice to me.

If a lot of HIS friends are going to be attending, I would start at six per person just for them alone.

My sons 39 and he can eat a whole rack by himself. He cost me a fortune when he was a kid. 5 litre ice cream in one sitting. You might need to rethink quantities.
Good luck.

Half rack per person plus 4 extra racks, just in case. Are you making any ABTs or Mionk balls? With the normal sides, you should have plenty.

Thanks everyone. Weather has now come into the picture so I may get a reprieve.
Glad he did not ask for king crab legs!

Yes, plenty sides.
