Last Fall, when I worked for the City I was asked to cook for the annual Fall get-together. I was tasked with grilling the chicken and preparing corn for 200 people. The event was held in the City park and I had two 8 ft X 16 in. charcoal grills. I had my two assistants start cooking 4 hours before the event started. One grill was used for the chicken breasts and the other grill was used for the legs, thighs and wings. As soon as the chicken was done, it was placed into one of two foil line coolers-keeping the breast and dark meat separate. In every office you always have one fussybutt/worry wort. This ol' gal (bless her heart) was worried how little ol' me was going to do corn for 200 people-funny how she WASN"T worried about the chicken. For weeks she pestered me on "how ya going to do it? When are you going to have to get started?". I tell ya, I didn't do any worrying-she did enough for the both off us. she finally backed off when the boss threatened her with the oppertunity to do it all herself :evil:. Between checking and turning the chicken on the grill, my assistants and I shucked 100 ears of corn and broke them in half- since the powers above me (the Mayor) thought half an ear of corn was plenty since one of the area Food stores was providing the salad and dinner rolls and one of the Resturants was donating the baked beans. Each city department was providing a dessert dish for 20. After the corn was shucked and broken in half it was placed into my 100 quart cooler along with 1 pound of butter and two cups of sugar. Two hours before serving time I then fired up both of my propane stoves and boiled up 10 gallons of water. While the water was boiling the cooler with the corn in it was placed on the serving line and when the water reached the boiling stage, it was dumped onto the corn (you want to make sure that the drain hole is plugged on the cooler BEFORE the boiling hot water is added :roll: ) and the lid was closed. The corn sat undistrub til serving time. In the end I got rave reviews on the chicken and corn, complaints about the baked beans-not enough bacon in them (not my area, I know) and invited to cook for a dozen family reunions.
