I have been off since the fall and got a catering event for next weekend for 250 people. I will be dropping this off for an event planner who gets me some good events so I may be a little high on my numbers and that is ok with me, I just want to make sure there is enough. Let me know what you think, thanks.

Pulled Pork 85lbs cooked weight
Baked Beans 6 full 2 1/2" pans
Mac n Cheese 7 full 2 1/2" pans
Cole Slaw made from 50lbs cabbage

If I'm short or way high I'd like to hear about it. Thanks again!

I originally thought your cole salw number was a little high. 50 lbs is a lot of cabbabge. The last catering we performed we yielded more than enough slaw from 15 pounds (for 100 people). Carrying that out would be closer to 35 - 40 pounds, but if you have a lot of loss from the heads before cutting / shredding them maybe 50 lbs would be required. I guess it would depend on the quality and type of cabbage being used.

I get pre cut (longcut) from Sysco. 10lbs makes about 1 3/4 gallon of cole slaw. So I am figuring 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 gallons of slaw.
