View Full Version : Cooking for friends..100+ ins. concerns?
05-14-2010, 09:22 PM
There is an upcoming graduation party coming with about 125 people or so. My friend wants me to help him with cooking the que. If it's helping him cook for his family and friends and there's no money changing hands, just using my cooker, are there still concerns regarding personal risk and insurance? I thought about getting a dba and getting insurance but not sure there's enough time...any input would be appreciated..

Well there are always concerns even with insurance. But, if you are just helping and no money is exchanging hands I would say that should be ok. However, there is always a chance of someone wanting to call Lee Free. Just make sure everything is cooked properly and held at the right temps and everything should be ok. Again you are just a volunteer...

Well are you cooking on site? Or just preparing it before hand for reheating. Also are you cooking something that your not comfortable with. I'll take a stab your doing pulled pork. Stay true to your temps and you should have nothing to worry about. In this case I would say your friend would be the responsible party. I wouldn't sweat it unless your not sure of your smokes.

Thanks for your input and thoughts.
We will be cooking on site at his house. Plenty of freezer and refridgeration, as well as fresh water. We are doing pulled pork and baby-backs, which he and his wife will be resposible for purchasing and storing until the event. I am very sure of my smokes, especially with these two items...Just there's going to be alot of them. His family will be bringing the side dishes and that sort of thing, so I've no concerns with that end of it..Guess I'll be fine.:cool:
