HOWMUCH MEAT?For pulled pork, a typical sandwich (or serving) is 4 oz of cooked meat. Foradult males, you might want to plan on 2 sandwiches per person. For women andchildren, plan on one sandwich per person. The average butt loses about 40% ofits weight while cooking. So, to get 6 pounds of cooked pork (24 sandwiches)you would need to start with 10 pounds of butt (2.4 servings per LB of uncookedmeat). So a simple little formula is all you need:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Number of men (men orlarge eaters)= MNumber of women and children (lighter eaters)= WPounds of Butt to buy = BB=(2M+W)/2.4So if there 5 men and 5 women,B=(2*5+5)/2.4 =15/2.4 = 6.25 Pounds
