Default got any FundRaiser BBQ experiences

oops, posted to abf first

Any of you ever do fundraiser BBQ?
Any experiences folks could share?

The local scout troop is looking for fundraiser ideas and I bring BBQ to
their annual troop dinner.
They all rave over it and there tends to be very little leftovers.

I have a buffet menu in mind and can get access to a health dept. certified
kitchen at the church where the scouts meet.

Items to avoid?
Amounts to have on hand vs. number of people?

tentative menu::
pulled pork (rolls available for sammiches)
beef brisket (rolls available for sammiches)
pork spareribs and country-style ribs
split chicken breasts
A big dutch oven of Brisket -n- bean chili
maybe a dutch oven chili cookoff (patrolls each cook dutch to compete
against mine)
grilled corn on cob
baked beans
possibly sweet potato fries
coleslaw
corn bread
Fresh Squeezed Lemonade (scout events dont allow alcohol -sigh-)
and plenty of sweet tea

plus have troop parents bring cakes/cookies/pies for bakesale
(of course a couple burgers and dogs for the foolish and finicky)

Unless all the fixins are donated, the troop will get little return
for the price you'll have to charge to get folks to show up other than
the troop's families.

Back when I had my troop, our best fundraisers were
... a pancake breakfast.
... Selling cokes and candies at the local city festival each
year.

By far, the best was the local city festival. Any of the local soft
drink distributors can set you up with a trailer, cups, ice, etc. Get
the candy from Sam's Club. We sold the 20 oz cokes for $1.00. About
15 of that covered the cost of the coke, ect., leavin the troop to
pocket the other 85. Typically, we made close to $1,500/festival.

the way to make money with bbq is to presell---by the pound or by the hunk
of meat. Usually get 8buckx/lb--Buzz
