I've been searching past post for one I saw on how much to make. There will be 5 or 6 adults 2 12 yo's that loveeeee meat and 3 8 n under

I know I've seen a post in the past about how much to make per person but I can't find it

Any help would be appreciated

I'm gonna do some streak Friday night then cool the egg
to 250 and throw on the butts

  • CelticWolf has guidelines on his site at:

    If you have a foodsaver, it never hurts to make as much as you feel comfortable packing in there. I usually buy boneless butts at Costco in cryovac'ed pairs.

    Have fun with the cook!

    The common calculation is take the number of people eating and divide by 2.4.

    If you want to use the exact figure Celtic Wolf has divide the number of people eating by 1.6. No need to do a lot of calculations.

  • I followed Celtic Wolf's guidelines when I made Q for a crowd and found that it made just the right amout; that is, enough to leave some leftovers. :lol:
  • And for a little precook motivation, let me show off my mad humble newbie skillz:

    I smoke two butts in the morning. I smoke two butts at night. I smoke two butts in the afternoon. It makes me feel alright.

    I smoke two butts in time of peace and two in time of war. I smoke two butts before I smoke two butts and then I smoke two more.
