I'd expect more like 3-5% of attendance but cook for 6-8% to start with you have several days to unload any leftovers. 5% of 427,000 is over 21,000 servings. 21,000 6oz pork sandwiches will take 15,750 ponds of pork butt. Do you have that capacity and staff?
I figured the location would play a big part of it. If you take that 21,700 and divide it by 7 days then that's 3100 people a day. I will have a Ole Hickory EL-ED/X smoker so the capacity shouldn't be a issue.
