View Full Version : Meats for 12

06-16-2011, 11:08 PM
I'm smoking some meats only for a friend at work who is having 12 guests.
Not providing anything other than the meats. Any thoughts if this is enough meat for 12 ( 3 of the guys are big, BIG guys and love to eat).

1 - brisket ~ 13lb packer
2 - boston butts ~ 8lb each for PP (maybe 3)
3 - Racks of baby backs
1 - Fatty

Holy Overkill!!! Even with purge and fat melting off you'll have a lot of meat!

Well, keep in mind there will be some pre-leftovers set aside for the chef and the mrs to nibble on. I'll probalby go with a smaller brisket and only 2 butts ~ 7lbs. Also, the 12 is confirmed, some may bring a quest so figuring that in may have 18ish.
