How much to buy

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I generally cook for my family and neighbors but I am cooking for a party of 24-28 adults and could use some help deciding how much to make.

I am making ribs and pulled pork on the smoker the rest I think I have figured out (sides, burgers, dogs). I buy from Sam's club baby-back 3 packs and shoulder 2 packs how many would you recommend?

 

Thanks,

J.T.

For the pork I figure about 1/3 lb per sandwich so for 24 people you'd need 8 lbs of finished product. Figure you will yield 50-60% from bone in butts so you'd need 16 lbs of raw butt. Ribs I personally would figure 2-3 bones per person since you have so much other meat your cooking. Good luck with the smoke and be sure to post some Qview
