You certainly won't need 30 lbs of meat. I would probably aim for 20 lbs total (there will be a ton of leftovers at that point, but the problem with so many meats is that people aren't going to take all of them. They'll take their favorites, and if most of the crowd likes 1 or 2 things, you're going to be in trouble with, say, 3.5 lbs of tri tip.

Definitely go price your meat. We have put things on hold a little bit, and had some meat in the freezer that we hadn't cooked for other events, etc. so I haven't priced anything from my suppliers recently, but judging by what the stores are charging - your price is going to be sky high compared to normal. The beef, especially.

Edit: just realized I was counting the slabs of both ribs as pounds. Half may still be too much, but you have to be cognizant of the same issue (runs on certain proteins).
