Festive meal for 25 people...what to make??

I'm throwing a dinner for my friend's 50th and I think I'm looking at feeding about 25 folks. I've been thinking about chili, maybe a whole slow roasted pork butt-- any other ideas??

Lexington Kentucky organic turkey

hey all-- I'm heading to Lexington for thanksgiving with the in-laws and was just told that I will be cooking the bird. Since my lexington family sticks to frozen butterballs, I was wondering if anyone knew of a local farm where I could order an organic turkey--

Brisket

I want to make a brisket for passover and I need a killer recipe--I made one a few years ago with moroccan flavors but have no clue where I found that recipe! And I'm ready to try something new--

Dim sum with the relatives today/Triple 8?

We have one more day with the Kentucky folks--so we thought we'd take them to Chinatown. We usually go to Dim Sum Go Go but I think they'd prefer the carts-- how is Triple 8 these days?

Just got a res for lunch at Momofuku Ko

I didn't realize that lunch is FIFTY dollars more then dinner! Please let me know if you guys think its worth it-- it would be tough for us to swing it but we could squeak by. How expensive is the wine pairing?

Smoked Turkey carcass

Favorite Recipe for a 10 pound Picnic shoulder--

I have never cooked such a giant piece of meat! I am thinking of the slow roasted River Cafe version (fennel/garlic) but welcome other ideas--

A Silver Palate Lemon Chicken question:

I have made the lemon chicken recipe from the Good Times Cookbook several times, which consists of marinating chicken parts in lemon juice and then dredging them in flour and seasonings before baking them. (I think they also get sprinkled with marinade and brown sugar)-- I am seeing a new version on the internet that involves frying the chicken for 10 minutes BEFORE putting it in the oven-- is this really better? its alot more trouble--

9 hour oven baked ribs

Kept them uncovered the whole time. When I put on the sauce I jacked oven up to 500 for 10 minutes-- finishing under the broiler would have been good too, mine is just tempermental.

9 hour oven baked ribs

Okay, I rubbed my 4 racks of st Louis ribs with a version of Bittman's rub (salt, sugar, cumin, paprika and chile powder) and then the next day put them on foil lined cookie sheets, into the oven at 180 degrees for 9 hours! sauced them a little (with bone suckin sauce) at the end and jacked up the temp to get a glaze.
They were AMAZING-- moist, incredibly flavorful-- tender but not mushy. The best ribs I have ever had.

oven baked ribs for tomorrow

okay, I have 4 racks of st louis ribs-- 10 pounds in all. I am planning on making a rub with cumin, paprika, chili powder and salt and pepper. and sugar. My question is-- should I put the rub on tonight and let it sit over night in the fridge?
tomorrow I will cook uncovered at 180 for 6 hours--- a method a friend swears by--
