BBQ cook off team needs a logo

I am seeking a design for our Bar-B-Que cook off team. We are all family members, hence the name of the team. The logo will be used for signage, T-shirts, etc. at the contests we attend.
We have some ideas as to the design we are seeking. Using the name "All In The Family Cookers", we desire a reference to the old television show (All In The Family). Our ideas are as follows: 1. Use the font "Windsor Bold" for the title of the team. "All In The Family Cookers" above the image. (See example font in included images) 2. A cartoonish picture of the two chairs Archie and Edith sat in. 3. Have a pig sitting in Archie's chair, with a cigar, perhaps a beer in one hand. 4. Have a chicken sitting in Edith's chair with an apron on. 5. Have a cow/bull in the background (behind the chairs), looking over, perhaps representing Mike, maybe with his trademark mustache. 6. Can't decide how to represent Gloria, open to suggestions. Maybe two cows in the background, a bull and a heifer. (BBQ cook offs are typically comprised of three meats-pork ribs, chicken, and beef/brisket. So these are the only three animals we want.) 7. Perhaps make the image appear like a late 19th century family portrait. Below the image, a plaque saying "The Meatheads" 8. There was always a small table between Archie's and Edith's chair. This could possibly be replaced by a small BBQ grill. 9. I am no artist. If at all possible, capture the expressions in the animal faces to be a caricature of the actors from the television show. (i.e.: A timid looking Edith chicken) We have no experience with logo design, the files, etc. From what I have read, I assume we need a vectorized image. We want to be able to print different size images ( T-shirts, banners, etc) without degradation. A local printer told me to get an EPS file for silk screening, a DST file for embroidery, as well as a JPEG image. An AI file as well? I am not sure about the number of colors in an image. I was told to keep the number of different colors at a minimum (to keep the expense of silkscreening T-shirts down), yet I don't want to take away from the artistry. I guess I am saying to keep the color count down where possible, without detracting from the overall image. Is it possible to have a second monotone (or less than 4 color) file included, preserving detail, for silkscreening T-shirts? We could then have a more colorful image for a banner or other printing needs, where we were willing to spend more on one time printing jobs.
