Default Am I close? the call today to smoke the meat for a graduation reception in mid May. 60 adults plus children and they want briskies and butts.

My numbers:

Butts -
25 lbs uncooked x 55% yield = 13.75 lbs x 16 oz = 220 oz / 5 oz serving = 44 sandwiches

Briskets -
25 lbs uncooked x 60% yield = 15 lbs x 16 oz = 240 oz / 5 oz serving = 48 servings

Think this is enough?

Second part...and probably the tough part. I've got one WSM 22" to smoke this on. I've got enough room to do the butts in one cook and the briskets in one cook. Which would you do first?

If the reception was Sunday afternoon...cook the pork Friday night and then cook the beef Saturday night?

Looking for any and all suggestions!! Thanks.
