The pulled pork sounds phenomenal!

I would look for a catering company that would maybe allow your FI to make the pork and sauces- but they could do all the sides, etc. As long as he has his own means of cooking (they usualy won’t let you in their space due to insurance reasons).

The other option- hire servers from your favorite local restaurant! Ask the manager well in advance and see if they would be ok with you hiring 3-4 (depending on size?) servers and one of their bartenders for the event. It happened all the time when I was a waitress. You would need someone to ‘head’ the team though.

You can definitely find venues that allow you to bring in your own caterer. It’s a little trickier around my area, but if you look for venues that aren’t as “in demand”, they tend to be more flexible! Good luck!

Pulled pork can be made days ahead of time (DH just made it last night, YUM).  If he insists on making it, maybe a great compromise would be to have him make it and hire someone to heat it up and serve it.  That way everyone gets to eat well and enjoy.
