Default Please check my numbers

Hi all, I am doing a party on Saturday for a 70's and 80's class reunion. They are having a huge party with live bands abd lots of drinking I am sure. The serving time they have requested is 3pm so I am thinking people will be real hungry and not have eaten lunch in anticipation of the whole hog bbq.

I am cooking for 150 guests
My whole hog came in at 133lbs (head on), I ordered it to be closer to 150lbs but it came in smaller and the guest count grew from 125 to 150. So I figure that will feed 100 people. Then I am going to cook another 40lbs (raw) butts to blend with it. Thought?

Also I am figuring on 9 -10# cans of baked beans and 7 gallons of coleslaw. This is buffet style and they are fixing their own plates. What do you think about my numbers?

Thanks for your input!
