    Having 22 people for a bridal shower. I want to do Boston Butt and was wondering how many pounds I will need. Any suggestions would be appreciated .

    Personally I like to figure 1/3 lb per person finished weight and you'll yield 50-55% of raw weight.

    22 make 24 it's easier 24+3= 8 pounds of finished product so start with 16 lbs of bone in butt and you should be fine.  That is figuring you'll have sides to go with the meal. I would suggest a couple batches of Dutch's wicked beans as one side
