This should give you about 44 pounds of cooked meat... Enough for 4 ounces of meat per person. I would normally kick up my numbers by 10% just to be on the safe side.

I think his other numbers are pretty good.
But that only gives you 2 oz of PP, can't even make a sandwich with that?

I like Bubba's numbers on this one, although I might add the 10%. I wold hate to run out of food. Be careful about buffetts, they can be a pain in portion control.
We catered a box hunt this weekend and their were maybe a dozen kids (14-17) who PILED the PP on BOTH sides of their bun and then came back for seconds. Had they not over estimated their numbers, I would have been hurting. I darn near came unglued when I saw these little chits not only take that much, but made sure they were first in line and coming back for seconds before others even went through once.

I'd go with the 87 lb of uncooked pork and 72 lb of brisket to deliver 4 Oz / meat / portion or 43.5 lbs of each cooked meat, but this is only going to work if you maintain portion control, better to have them serve their sides and you or a designated person serve the meat portions.

5 or more #10 cans of beans and 35 lbs of potato and slaw would put you in the ball park.

This is still working out 8 Oz of meat and 12 Oz of sides for 175.

Pork $464.28 buy at $1.27 / lb case price Sam's club
Brisket $557.14 buy at $1.80 / lb "
Slaw $112.01
Potato $102.68
Beans $98.71

Total $1334.72 or $7.63 / person for 300% profit so at $8.00 your in the right zone depending on what things sell for in your area, and what price you can buy for?

As for price, hell, I don't know but I think I can help a little with the amounts of food.

I recently cooked for 100 adults. I smoked 6-13 lb briskets and 6-8 lb butts along with 12 slabs of spares. I also baked 2 full pans of baked beans.

I had 3 briskets left, 3 butts and 1 full pan of beans.

I didn't complain. I have a lot of good stuff in MY freezer for chili and sammies. I tossed the beans.

Live and learn.

I agree, but most people would only take one or the other, not 2 sammies one of each...
