Discussion in 'Catering & Large Group Gatherings' started by iron city, Aug 1, 2013.

  1. I have my annual summer party this weekend. 40 ish adult guests. Here is the menu with all raw numbers

    8lb packer brisket (slices and burnt ends)

    2 racks of baby backs

    3- 8lb pork butts (bone in)

    double order of Dutch's Baked beans

    a ton of ABT's and pork shots

    I'm not worried about everyone getting a taste of everything, I just want to make sure everyone gets meat of some sort. there will be a bunch of other sides like potato salad, cole slaw, cornbread, etc....

    What do you guys think.......
     
  2. yes the  3 Butts = 24# - smoke loss.......You are good to go............remenber Qview

    Happy smoken.

    The butts alone would be 24 lbs raw weight should be 12-14 lbs finished product and at 1/4 lb sandwiches you have at least 48 and that is on the low side of yield so I would say with the other meat you have plenty. Hope it's a great success and everyone has fun
