Thats two 8 Pounders right there, Bone in though.

LARGE BGE DALLAS TX.
The formula I've always used is raw weight x .6.
Then 1/3 lb per person.
Easy to make more.
The other one is 2.4 servings per pound of raw weight
LBGE,SBGE Sweet home Alabama........
Stay thirsty my friends .
But do three anyway. You can use leftovers for ABT's, pizza, tacos, or more sammies.
I did two for a girl at work for a party and one guy ate eleven sandwiches
I always make as much as I can stuff in the BGE. Pork shoulder and beef brisket is so cheap, there's no reason not to fill it up. I send everyone home with a doggie bag, take some over to the neighbors, and bring the rest to work.
Two weeks ago I did 32 lbs of butt on the XL, a 18 lbs whole packer brisket on the Large, and 5 lbs of smoked sausage on the Medium. 30 people at the b-day / charcoal season kick-off party. We ate about half at the party, and 1/4 went home as leftovers, and the other 1/4 went to work and was gone the next day. $70 in meat made a LOT of people very happy.

I got all that at Restaurant Depot.....
$1.18/lb for 2 - 8lbs bone-in pork butts ($1.28 w/o the bone, $1.09 for the picnic shoulder.)
$2.49/lbs for Angus Brisket (I think the non-Angus was a $2.29?)
Every month the local groceries will run deals on pork butts for $0.99-$1.29 /lbs pork butts. It used to be as low as $0.79/lbs 5-6 yrs ago before corn prices went crazy. I think the whole packer brisket at my local Wal-Mart are only $2.70-2.80?
BTW, I think I saw on another thread that you make charcoal. Do you have a SoCal distributor?
Sorry, no one in SoCal right now.......you want to be a dealer? Talk with friends, coworkers, or local BBQ supply shop and see if you can get enough people together to share a few pallets. That's how I got started. With only one pallet, I'm afraid the shipping will cost more than the charcoal. But if you get a several pallets, you'll be able to spread that cost out. Send me an email through the website if you want to discuss it further. http://www.stlcharcoal.com
