Kiss the pig...

So my boss at work did a fundraiser for the wounded warrior project where he kissed a pig for the group raising $2500 for vets day... As a fun follow-up I thought we might do a pulled pork lunch / potluck...billing it as the pig being unable to cope with the embarrassment of the event...kind of like a wake for the pig... Are there any rules of thumb where an x lb butt makes y number of sandwiches...ect?

    I remember seeing 1 pound per person but not sure if that was plate or sandwich. I really think it would be the same for both.

    I have always used the 1/3 pound per person rule and have never come up short.  Sure, you get some guys that eat three sandwiches, but the women and kids always even it out.  I have always had leftovers using that ratio.

    I have seen divide the number of people by 2.4 for the amount of raw pork you need. This is a mix of men/women/children so keep your audience in mind.

  • I like the 1/3 per person plan, but I always cook extra cause I love the leftovers
