Baptism party help

I am in search of an idea for an economical entree to serve at a baptism party over Memorial Day weekend.  We had initially planned to grill out, but don't have a good source for hamburger patties (no Sam's Club or Costco nearby) and ground hamburger is expensive here. We expect 50-75 people, as we live in a Catholic college town with lots of large families.

-The baptism will follow a 10:30 Mass.  I need something that can be prepared ahead and kept warm in the oven or slow cooker while we are at church so it is ready to serve soon after we get home.

-People often serve pulled pork at these parties, but we are coming off a stretch of Confirmations, First Communions, and graduations, so I was looking for something different, although using pulled pork in a taco bar could be fun.

-Ditto for ham, following Easter.

I would love to hear your ideas!

Beef brisket. make it a day or two ahead so it can be cold to slice. made a recipe I found on the little kitchen .com and it was great. start at least two days early if it's your first.

I think we're grilling brats and hotdogs for our upcoming graduation party. Add a variety of condiments and two make-ahead salad choices and we're set here.
