Butt weight loss question

Anyone ever figure out generally how much weight a butt losses during its 20 hour journey? I am planning on cramming as many as I can fit on my large as my food contribution to an upcoming party & need a rough idea of how many pounds of finished meat I can tell the good folks I am bringing (thinking about four to six 8 pounders)

    Average butt loses 40% of it weight during a cook. The average amount of PP for the sandwich is 4oz.

    You can do the math from here.
