Suggestions on food for a club ride(11 posts)

Suggestions on food for a club rideElefantino
Nov 8, 2001 5:09 PM
The first Saturday after I get back on the bike — Jan. 12 — I want to feed the club members after the ride as thanks for all the support they have given me through my recovery.

We're having an in-house debate about what to serve. I voted for burgers and hot dogs, but the other half thinks we should have pizza. We'll probably have 50 or 60 people.

the other half?mr_spin

I'm assuming that's your significant other. Or is it half the club?

What's the big deal? Get both. The advantage of pizza is that you don't have to make it, cook it, or clean it up.

On the other hand, if this is a daytime event, men need to stand around a BBQ with beers in hand and cook stuff.

Finally, if you have 50-60 people coming, get some of them to bring their own stuff if they want alternatives! Your house, your party, your menu!
The other half ... the wife ... I mean "boss." Sorry, dear (nm)Elefantino

BBQ is an event; Pizza is just Pizzajtolleson

Absolutely burgers and dogs (don't forget the veggie burgers for dem folks that want 'em). A BBQ is a party, a bonding gathering. Pizza is just grab a slice and run. Have some folks bring some sides, make it a team event.

Hands down.

but of course, just one gal's opinion...
I agree with jtollesonKristin

Burgers and brats (not dogs)...but it doesn't matter what we think. Your wife is always right!

I marinate the chicken breasts in soy sauce/sesame oil (with a little ground garlic thrown in) and cook them on the grill. Hot Dogs and Veggie Burgers for the non-believers. Get a big ass sheet cake from Safeway or Giant for dessert.

If you are doing BBQ, go whole hog (sorry) and smoke a pork butt. You can do this on a regular Weber grill fairly easily...this would be hard to do for 50 people, however. Hell, cooking anything for 50 people is work. Forget it...go with the pizza.
