    try using google. i think most people get better results using google search instead of this site. you can also do a site specific search using google. not sure of the syntax, buy you can google it :)

    I like the search capability on the other forum, first search on 'pulled pork serving size', when the results come back, check mark 'all words' option and search again.

    Take # people and divide by 2.4 to get #'s of raw meat to cook.  Round up for some extras and factor in the crowd-college kids, kids etc, also sides. For example 100 people;100/2.4= 42 #'s of pork butts. YMMV-

    Just to add- the 1/4 per person is based on 1/4 lb per person.  Here are the figures for 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 serving sizes:

    Serving Size Divide Number of People by (for Raw weight)
    1/2 lb per person 1.2
    1/3 lb per person 1.8
    1/4 lb per person 2.4



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Always like these rehashed but never boring questions/answers/opinions. 
    I've always used 1/2 pound raw weight per person or each raw pound pound will feed two people. (I actually allow a little more because I work in Kg, 2 people = 500g) The left overs have never been a problem.

    pulled pork serving size site:eggheadforum.com

    Type the above syntax into Google.  I'm sure someone else may know better search functions, but the "site:[name of website]" function works well usually
