Pulled pork for 67 people

lilwootylilwooty Posts: 215
I have been asked to egg up pulled pork for 67 people this weekend for a huge pool party.  Going by what I have read here, I am thinking about buying 25 lbs. of pork shoulder to do the job, keeping in mind that about 25 of the 67 attendees are children ranging in ages between 4 and 16.  Sound like I am in the ball park?

    That might be a bit on the lite side. I go by people/2.4, (about 28 pounds in your case), then round up to the nearest butt/shoulder size that gets me there. I'd always rather have extra than not enough.

    If you serve on rolls, that helps it stretch. Also, sides, etc.

    We will be serving it two ways.  Some pulled with sauce and buns, slaw, pot salad.  Some will be done with more of a chili  and cumin based rub for tacos.  So there will be tortillas, rice and beans as well.  But I don't want to run out, that's for sure.  Thanks for the input.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
