I ordered 6-2.5" pans from webstaurant since I have 4 from my chafers I ordered. Now I have 10 and those Cambro's will hold 5 a piece so I am good there...

here is what I am thinking- I plan on smoking 5 -4" aluminum hotel pans of beans and 3-4" pans of Mac and cheese and then transfer all of it to the 2.5 pans and then toss in Cambro. Whatever is left in the 4" aluminum pans I can just wrap in foil and take with me and if there is an available oven toss those in the oven or put them on the buffet line to go first...(this will probably be what I will do)

As far meat and side portions here is what I am thinking:

140lbs Pork (raw) = 70lbs cooked with 8oz portions = 140 servings

20lbs Beef Chuck (raw) = 10lbs cooked= with 8oz portions = 20 Servings

5 cans 117oz Baked Beans doctored up= 146-4oz servings (but I am doctoring these up so there will actually be more servings

15lbs (raw) of Mac and Cheese= the only thing I am not to sure about is this... I have never done Mac and cheese for the masses but I have found several recipe's that say to feed 100 I need 8lbs of elbow mac so I am just about doubling this recipe to give me around 200 servings.

320 Cheap white buns

I am thinking along the serving sizes of:

2-4oz portion sandwhiches
4oz serving of Mac and cheese
4oz serving Beans

Beans Recipe

2 lbs Pulled pork
1 Medium onion, diced
1 Bell pepper, diced
1 -117 ounce can Bushs Baked Beans
1-20 ounce can of pineapple chunks, drained
2 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
2 Cup ketchup
2 Cup drippings from meat

Mac and cheese recipe for 200

15 pounds elbow macaroni
15 pounds velveeta cheese
3 pound margarine
2 gallons milk
4 tablespoons salt

2 teaspoon black pepper
3 packages (large size) shredded Cheddar cheese (for topping)

My numbers sound legit or am I making way way t much?
