    Is it posable for one 8lb butt feeding about 20 people?

    Here is the formula

    You are going to loose 40% to cooking. The average sandwich should be 4-6 oz. The average plate is 6-10 depending on the eaters.

    You also need to adjust for kids and people who dont eat Pork. It will also depend on your sides

    Hope this helps

    Smoke two and freeze the rest since you are fired up. [​IMG]

    X4 , It's probably just me, NO I bet other think this way. If you are going to fire up the smoker and you are going to do 2 you mine as well do 3 and have plenty of left overs. [​IMG]
