Yes. What everyone else has said. Did you sleep fine the night before? I'd have been a bundle of nerves. When you came to the point where you knew you had a system for keeping it under control must have been a good relief.  Great job and hopefully your plan to get into it with your wife works out for you!

Nice job dude!
Takes some balls to cook for that many people on an unfamiliar grill, looks like you guys crushed it though !

Travis, great job bro!! Most I have catered for is 175 for a wedding... 400? Wow! Good on ya' for doing that!

There's nothing like cooking on a stick burner... my Klose is a dream, butt wants to be fed often... gotta stay after the fire.

Awesome! I wouldn't have any idea how to run a stick burner other than load it up with wood and let er rip

Very cool.  I haven't been out to grafton for a long time.  I might need to take my wife on a field trip.

Great job Travis...and good on ya for bringing the kettles along. Brave move to cook that much on a "strange" grill, but like you said, a well built stick burner will almost run itself...kind of like a WSM.
Glad all went well Brother!

Good job, @Travis. I love the fire in the first pic. Maybe next time you can convince them to purchase you an RK as "compensation" :D

Once again, great job Travis! I cater a lot, usually much smaller groups. Dang, 400 people! You did an amazing job sir!

Thanks again guys. It was a fun project. Really didn't know how much work was involved with it, especially when it came down to the last hour and youre trying to get everything off, in warmers and serve. That offset was so much fun to run. Like I said, once hot, it stays hot. I see the difference between heavy metal pits vs. thin. Really wasn't a huge cookout like you real caterers are used to, just beer brats, dogs, and veggie kabobs. But it was a great experience and opportunity. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. And if they would fork out the dough for an rk, I'd probably creme myself a little to be able to cook on both [emoji41]
Thanks again, guys
