Default First time vending this weekend, looking for suggestions

I've been doing some catering this year out of my 22' concession trailer, and am looking to start vending. I have an opportunity to post up at a fall fair this weekend for $450- last year, it had an attendance of ~12000.

Most of my BBQ is solid- great brisket and ribs, OK pulled pork and chicken. Sides are really good.

I will only have one other person working with me, and they will be handling the orders / cash while I prepare the food. I'm hoping y'all have some suggestions for my menu.

When you vend, what does a typical menu look like? Here's what I was thinking:

Brisket Sandwich $9
Pickle, Onion, BBQ Sauce

Pulled Pork Sandwich $9
BBQ Sauce, Slaw

Slider Trio $11
-Pulled Pork

-4 Bones $8
-8 Bones $14
-Full Rack $20

Single Platter $15
-Sliced Brisket
-2 Ribs
-1/2 Sausages
-White Bread
-Potato Salad

Family Platter $35
-Sliced Brisket
-8 Ribs
-2 Sausages
-White Bread
-Potato Salad

-Potato Salad

If you have any ideas for me on how to make this run smoother, I'd be much appreciative!
