    I am from Western Washington!

    Seattle area!

    I have no experience in pulled Pork, smoking. 

    My daughter is marrying into farming, hunting, fishing. I am from the city.

    We have an uncle of the groom donating and raising a hog for a 6.6.15 wedding. I am trying to figure out the Barn wedding extravaganza..party..food..dancing celebration. We are expecting 200 people & will have 225-50 lb pig to prepare. We are thinking of smoked & pulled sliders w/ sauces, skewered grilled chicken, buffet sides, appetizers, cake and bar. How many lbs of pulled pork can we expect from a 225# hog (pig)?

    I really appreciate all of your experience as I move into another world of hog roasting, pig picking, pulled pork!

    I am excited and need help!

    Wedding mom!!

  3. Glad you joined the group. The search bar at the top of any page is your best friend.
    About anything you wanna know about smoking/grilling/curing/brining/cutting or slicing
    and the list goes on has probably been posted. Remember to post a QVIEW of your smokes.
    We are all smoke junkies here and we have to get our fix. If you have questions
    Post it and you will probably get 10 replies with 11 different answers. That is
    because their are so many different ways to make great Q...

    You will get more answers if you will start a thread in the pork section or use the search bar.

    Is the 225# live or dressed weight?
    Happy smoken.

  5. well a few more questions to find your answer...are you having the pig processed or someone in the family doing the butchering...or cooking the whole hog..what cuts are you going to use for pulled pork ..Boston Butt..Picnic..Whole Shoulder or other cuts ?so at 250 pound pig ( would really expect more weight )  expect about 125 pounds in processing  pork chops, spare ribs, sausage, ham,  bacon, shoulder butts, picnic roast, bones, trimmings, fat

    main thing is about 125 pounds meat  little more little less

    hope all goes well with the planning and wedding
