#10 can is about 22-26 1/4 cup portions - depends on brand. So, I'd do about 8-9 cans.
125# of raw pork but should leave some overrun.

How early you get there depends on a number of things: how big is your cooker? What's the outside temp? How cold is the meat when you put it in the cooker? What time/temp profile do you usually use?

I just did pork for about 300+ last Sunday. I did 202# weighed pounds of raw pork. We fed everyone, sold about 10-12 quarts, and froze another 8 quarts for them to sell on Wednesday night. I cook hot so I started fire in the stickburner at 2:00 AM. Loaded at about 2:45 AM, took out of cooker at about 8:30 or so and let rest until about 10:00 AM when the first couple of pans were pulled.
