Does this sound like a lot?

I have a job for 90 this comming weekend. I have:
8 butts
3 whole packers
18 racks of spares
60 thighs
36 breasts
3 #10 cans of beans
5lbs of cole slaw
tossed salad

What do you guys think, too much of something, not enough of another? HELP!

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

I'd cut the ribs and chicken by a 1/3 at the least and maybe only do 6 butts, that's alot of food!

That is 5lb bag of chopped cabbage and I was going to add the carrots and the sauce. Should be around 7-8 lbs when I get done.

I'd eliminate the breasts and cut the butts to 6. Leave the ribs alone. It will be about 2 ribs per person.

I agree 100% with Larry. Cut back to 6 butts and cut the ribs and brisket by 1/3. The ribs are good with 2 1/2 bones per person. Most people wont be that hungry after a wedding reception. That sounds like a good job with a good price, good luck.
