is this enough food for 40 guests.....

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have my annual summer party this weekend. 40 ish adult guests. Here is the menu with all raw numbers

 

8lb packer brisket (slices and burnt ends)

 

2 racks of baby backs

 

3- 8lb pork butts (bone in)

 

double order of Dutch's Baked beans

 

a ton of ABT's and pork shots

 

I'm not worried about everyone getting a taste of everything, I just want to make sure everyone gets meat of some sort. there will be a bunch of other sides like potato salad, cole slaw, cornbread, etc....

 

What do you guys think.......

I'm no expert but looks like enough to me.

The butts alone would be 24 lbs raw weight should be 12-14 lbs finished product and at 1/4 lb sandwiches you have at least 48 and that is on the low side of yield so I would say with the other meat you have plenty. Hope it's a great success and everyone has fun
