Do you mean menu? Organization?

Get some of the other 20 adults to help.

Keep the menu simple hamburgers and hot dogs.

It only takes two people to run the BBQ's for a forty person cookout and cook the entre' but the fixings and set up take time and more folks helping.

Be specific about what you want others to do and tell them in advance. Designate specific people to look after or entertain the kids while the preparation is going on.

Everyone helps clean up.

Leave it better than you found it.

Have fun.

if you have an 18QT. or 12Qt roaster, you could do turkey, chickens, bbq pulled pork or roast beef. Also chili. We use these in Arizona in the winter when we have a crowd for an outside dinner. Just plug into your trailer and it makes the main meal easy to cook.
Use paper plates(not styrofoam) then you have starter for the fire-pit later.
Get other adults to bring a dish to pass which will feed at least 8-10.
You will enjoy your company more if you are not hurried and busy with cooking! You can still have the bbq going for burgers and dogs, especially for the kids..
Have a great time. Dona

Don't ask for volunteers, just call them up and tell them they need to bring ????? or help cooking certain items. Another thing to do is to precook some items so all you have to do is heat them some. The ones that do not want to help can donate cash toward purchasing pre-prepared items.

We have pot luck and such dinners at rallies and everyone pitches in at different times.

If BBQ'ing with chicken or beef I always use a rub to give it great flavor when I cook for a crowd. That way I can prep the day before and just throw it on the grill.

Crockpot desserts make it easier too! Have tons of fun

Yeah I have a thread with recipes, and if you look through you will find some. Post #5 is for crock pot chocolate cake. I use crock pots because I haven't done much dutch over cooking. Plus I can walk away and do other things with out worring.

Anyone up for trading recipes?

One other thing I will do when cooking for a crowd is if I am BBQ'ing chicken I will bring a seasoned pot to boil with garlic cloves, rosemary, onions slices, black pepper and whatever other seasoning you might want. I will cook the chicken in that and then place it on the grill. I save the broth from that and freeze it for later use.

Yes, cook the day before and wrap in foil then put in a cooler. Will still be hot the next day. We just cooked 6 briskets for 80+ with not a problem.

Pot luck is the best way to go. With the number of people you are talking about, you are sure to get a good selection and no one should go home hungary. Everyone helps clean up and you will not be so exhausted that you can't enjoy the meal and time with friends.
