Calculating Raw Pounds to Finish Product

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am just wondering if there is anyone here, that can tell me how to figure my pulled pork?  I am in the process of putting together numbers for the bank, so that i can open my barbeque.

Is there a way to calculate raw pounds, to finish product, after adding my other ingredients.  The bank wants to know if i start with a 10 pound Boston Butt raw, how many 8 oz. servings of finished product will that make?  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.  Bear with me, i am new.

Welcome to SMF. As a general rule they figure 50% of raw butt weight to finished product.

I appreciate the reply.  i was just looking at a catering calculator offered in one of the forums, and that is the exact number they were using.  Now, being located in the Midwest, i would like to find one, meat wholesaler, to supply me with every kind of meat.  Does anyone have an idea on this one.

Maybe check with SYSCO and see if they service your area
