rules of thumb for food amounts needed for cook-out?

baltoellen | Jun 14, 2010 01:59 PM

Planning a straightforward cook-out for about 50 people with the pretty standard fare of hot dogs and chicken, along with veggie kabobs and a big smoked bluefish. Will provide cook-out-y type sides, and others will be bringing sides, too.

The crowd ranges from people who exist on processed food to hardcore Chowhounds to a vegetarian or two.

Is there some general rule to figure out the amount of food we'll need? I'm totally clueless.

Thanks for any guidance.
