Doing cook for 30. Doing 3 butts should be plenty. How should i figure how much potatoe salad and cole slaw?

I always figure: 1/2 pound of meat per person, and 6 ounces of each side per person.

Don't forget, you will lose around 30% of those pork butts!!

Hope that helps!

what price do u get for sides?

20lbs of raw butts

If you are selling this as a drop off I would figure 5oz of meat and 4oz serving of each side per person then tell them that you have it priced that way and if they will have some big eaters they may want to order extra

Example 30 people - 5oz pork 4oz each two sides per person $6.95 if you have big eaters they may want to order for 40-45 people to make sure they have enough. This way if they run out it is not your fault.
