100 pounds of meat in cryo does not mean 100 pounds of meat on the cooker. You are close, but, could be low by about 10%, so, if 190 sandwiches is fine, then you are golden. Weigh them, that is my biggest tip. Portioners are great for soft product, but, with meat, the variation can be quite notable.
Good advice coming from an ex Texan!

Well, I would like to buy several sauces, but it is the Church's money. So, I thought it would be safe to go with Sweet Baby Ray's Original. I plan of having enough Plow Boy's, that I am paying for, to where they won't need much sauce. I did figure for 1/4. Though we don't want folks to feel cheated on an $8 plate with baked beans and slaw, with their sandwich. I think one of the church members works in a school cafeteria and is bringing scales. I won't be doing the serving, only the smoking. I suggested that they get some chicken qtrs. just as a back up(30 lbs). Thanks for all the replies!! I'm happy that I at least, was in the same ballpark!!
