    For a single protein or generous portions, you can figure 8 ounces Pulled Pork per person and 2 Rolls. Of course, if big eaters or all day event with men and drinking, go 10 to 12 ounces. Leftovers freeze well. The Math...

    50 people X 8oz portions = 400oz pulled pork / 16 oz/lb = 25Lb / .5% yield = 50Lbs Raw Butts. This has a built in 10% in case unexpected guest show up and let's the senior relatives take a plate home...JJ
