70 lbs of pulled pork, plenty if cooked weight, OK but not too much left if raw weight
165 pieces of chicken, plenty
8 gallons for sauce, 6 plenty

50 lbs of potato salad, I would do 8 gallons, which is closer to 60
14 lbs of pasta salad, 20

14 lbs for tossed salad, short- check the plan for 100 table, do 1 2/3 the amount for 100

4 fruit trays, size? See the fruit tray page- you want at least 32 pounds fruit
several relish trays, good- 2-3 classic relish trays on the veggie tray page

rolls & butter- 20 plus pounds breads, 4-5 pounds butter

If this saves you time, trouble, or money, consider a donation, maybe a dime per person, to support the site.
