How much pulled pork from 7lb butt??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I know it depends on a few factors but how much pulled pork should I expect from a smoked 7lb butt? Thanks in advance.

Whatever size butt ya smoke, figure round a 35% loss after the smoke & pull !

4#'s roughly....now once you add some sauce and some of the drippings back to the meat, it will bump up a little.  You are cooking water and fat out of the meat and off the surface.

As others have said, it is hard to get exact. If I am trying to calculate portions I figure 40% loss to be on the safe side. I also throw out every piece of fat I see while pulling and I know that other people will leave some fat so your yield can vary depending on your preference.

All meat looses weight once cooked. That's why a 1/4lb burger at any fast food place doesn't way a 1/4lb once cooked. Butts are on the high side of weight loss due to all the fat.
