How many ounces per steak?
To do 1000 as you know is more logistics then cooking.
Set 4 stations spread out in room or area otherwise you will have a conga line around the block.
I cook responsible for a specific item.
Waiters assigned specific jobs and locations in room.
Someone in charge of refilling stations
A manager in kitchen and one in dining room to coordinate timing, flow etc.
Someone to monitor rest rooms
Plenty garbage bags and trash cans.
Plenty of utensils for service. Don't forget condiments catsup, soy sauce, duck sauce etc.
Plenty extra sterno or handi fuel. Once you start rolling, its easy. Good Luck:chef:
Everything ready and in dining room by quarter to 6.
