Quanity and Resizing Charts

Here is one that has made the rounds a time or two before with sides added.

Don't know if it is a better mousetrap as much as just a different one.

On edit: I did not design it, I just pass it around as people have an interest or don't aske me if you have problems with it. LOL I am just the middleman.

Folks, I combined a couple of threads to help you with those big cooking events and even the small ones.

Of the two links posted, I use the one posted by Joe the most. All I need to do is enter in the number of guests, number of meats and sides and the chart does the hard part for me.

Catering Chart Accuracy

I am planning on making pulled pork sandwiches for a group. The catering chart lists 5.33 oz per sandwich for pulled pork. Does that seem pretty accurate? Also, does it seem pretty accurate to count on the meat weighing 55% of the original weight after cooking?

I do 4 oz per sammie an that has always been more en enough on a cheap white bun, folk always comment its alotta meat.

I figure 50% loss on butts, sometimes it ain't that much, but better safe then sorry. So, take the weight a yer precooked butt, cut that in half, devide that pound weight by 4 an it'll tell ya how many sammies that butt gonna give ya. In other words, yer gonna get 4 4oz sammies from each cooked pound a pork butt.

I bought 4 oz scoopers ta besure were servin 4 oz a meat on each sammie.

Thanks for any help,
