PP tacos for a wedding. How much?

  1. Ok so I will be doing a PP taco for a wedding in a few weeks for 150 people. I'm still getting a count on adult vs kids. So how much raw meat should I get? I'm thinking 95lb raw. There will be toppings beans..... chips salsa guacamole. but no real other fillers so I see a lot of tacos going out.
     
  2. Whew that’s going to be a lot of tacos! Good luck with that.

  3. At +/- 4oz per
    150x4 = 600oz
    600oz÷16oz = 37.5lbs cooked
    37.5 × 2 (@50% loss) = 75lbs raw
    This is a ballpark which we use as a min. 95lbs will give you 10lbs cooked over min(20 servings)Figure in kids and light eaters, good ballpark. Buffet or service? If service you can portion to serving and monitor amount if its going fast.

    I believe your numbers are off a bit.
     
  5. Yup × 2
    40×4÷16×2=20 raw/10 cooked
    Right?
     
  6. Yes it will be buffet. They want left overs so if I go over no big deal. So 95lb ?....
