    How heavy a bone-in butt do I need for 10? Actually, I'll probably do a couple, instead of one big one.

    Thx!

    I believe you would want to to have approx 3/4 lb per person unless they are big eaters and or you want left overs then go a bit heavier,my .02 worth [​IMG]

    We're firefighters, so we usually double what the "normal" person would make! Gonna do pulled pork for the fourth.

    i'd guess (judging by my feeds) 4 8-10 pounders.

    Far better to have too much than not enough..... [​IMG]

    i usually trim a lot of fat off after & save some of the bone meat w/ the bone to freeze for beans or blackeyed peas thats why i say so much.
