15lbs shredded beef
5 Hotel Pans baked beans --5 117oz cans
5 Hotel Pans mac and cheese--15 lbs dry mac
2 Hotel Pans of slaw--18 lbs slaw

I came home with

about 50lbs pulled pork
3 Hotel Pans of Beans

You had enough meat for 260 good sized sandwiches.
I figure three sandwiches per pound when catering.
