You will need 100lbs of finished weight for 1/2lb sammie's. Seems like large sammies to me. Might want to take 3 days off of work.
Sounds like a challenge, I'm in.
In my opinion, you arn't going to have real good luck with both racks full. Thats just to much cold meat and rotating them is gonna be a pain.
Maybe think about making another drum of put out a plee for help from friends, family and fellow smokers.
The wedding I did, I cooked everything ahead of time, rested, pulled and packaged in vac bags with all the juice. Frig or freezer, sounds like the frig will work for you. And then on serve day I used pans of boiling water to set the vac bags in to warm. Also had some in the microwave, and I even had to open some bags and dump them into pans with the juice and cover them in the oven.
When I did it, the cooking was the easy part. The prep the day of the event was the rough part, I had three helpers to get it all ready.
Like I said, I did mine the weeks before cause I didnt want to gamble on the stall and have it not ready.
