Default Does this catering plan make sense?

We are catering the meat for a cub scout dinner. Sides will be potluck.

100 people... 50 adults/50 kids. They want pulled pork, pulled chicken, brisket.

We are thinking... 15 lbs brisket, 15 lbs pork, 10 lbs chicken.

Sound right?

just rough math... if i was planning for 100 with a 50/50 kids mix.. cook for 75.. i'd go heavier on pork than anything else.. i'd prolly cook 5-6 butts if serving pulled but if sands, than 4. cook 2 full packers and then maybe 35-50 thighs.. but thats me..
