How many pork shoulder butts should I cook for 100 pulled pork sandwiches?

post #1 of 6

See below photo for roughly the amount of pulled pork to be in each sandwich.

 

My guess is 18-20 sandwiches per 8lb (raw weight) butt.

That looks like a good half pound sandwich. Assuming you'll yield about 50% of the raw weight when finished, your 8 lb butt will feed 8 people.

I always figure 6 ounces of sandwich meat per sandwich. So 100 sandwiches would be 600 ounces of meat or 37.5 pounds. So with roughly 50% shrinkage you need to start with about 75 to 80 lbs of raw pork butt. Sounds like about 8 to 10 average pork butts.

I have to second this comment. Also having a bit extra never hurt for let overs or seconds.
