Default cooking for 100 this weekend - sanity check om food quantities

big bash at the house this weekend to celebrate my youngest daughter getting her MBA and my other daughter leaving for california to attend Stanford law school. Got around 100 people coming to the house and i gotta feed them. Menu is pulled pork, brisket, baby backs, slaw and mac/cheese. Need a sanity check on the amounts. Here's what i figure.
  • pulled pork and brisket - need about 30lbs cooked of each for a 1/3 lb serving so i figure on about 60lbs uncooked weight of each
  • ribs - 20 racks to allow 3 bones each
  • 4 full pans of mac/cheese
  • 2 full pans of cole slaw
does this sound about right? There's some serious eaters in this crowd. thanks for your feedback.....Al
