What is the best way to figure out how much sauce you need for catering? I have to cook about 30lbs of pulled pork and need to figure how much sauce I need to make.

Sauce?? With pulled pork?? Catering to a bunch of yankees?

Okay I jest (but only little).

30 lbs is not a whole lot of pulled pork to sauce. 8 butts or so

I normally use a 1/2 cup per butt. YMMMV

If you talking saucing the pork before serving, 1/2 cup is good. If you're talking serving with pork as a condiment, more like 12 ounces per butt.

I do not sauce the pulled pork, however, I do offer 2 to 3 different sauces in squirt bottles for the crowd to choose their own finishing sauce. For 30# I would guess that you are cooking for 60 to 100 folks. In that case I would have about 3 bottles of each ( If 2 sauces) 2 bottles of each (if 3 sauces). You should have some left over, but people like to have a choice. If you choose a Bold or unusuall type sauce, I would serve less of it as opposed to a sauce that is relevant to your area.
