On a standard 4 meat KCBS comp I normally take a 16 pack of chicken thighs.
2 Briskets, 2 butts, and two racks of ribs. That's just for my comp meat. Not counting anything butt, Friday night dinners, or snacks.

YMMV

We cook two butts, two briskets, six racks of ribs, and a dozen thighs for every comp. We sell our leftovers to family, friends, and co-workers at cost to help with expenses. Good luck and have fun!

KCBS - 2 briskets, 4 butts, 6 ribs, and 12 thighs, 12 drumsticks and 2 whole birds. You can cook less, but if you screw up you might end up DAL, and you don't want that!! We also invite a lot of friends and family along to help eat.

For KCBS, I was doing 2 Briskets, 4 butts, 6 racks or ribs and 24 thighs, but it was way too much meat to go through between turn ins.

Now I do 2 briskets, 2 butts, 3 ribs and 12 chicken and my results are much better.

I'm getting out of this, that either the teams really like snacking on ribs, or I am way too confident I can find 6 good bones in two racks.

KCBS -- we do almost the exact same.
2 briskets, 3 butts, 4 racks, and I usually buy 24 thighs but bring the best 16-18
