What are you making? I would put your finished product in a 2 oz cup and weigh it. Multiply that by 300 and divide by 16. That will give you how much finished product you need. If you are making something that shrinks during cooking you will need the shrink factor and divide that by the weight of the finished product.

I am making pulled pork.

2 oz x 300 = 600

600/16 oz= 37.5 lbs finished pork

37.5/ 50% loss = 75 lbs raw pork.

This is just an example. You will not be able to fit 2 oz/wt into a 2 fl oz cup. That is why you need to weigh a cup with pork in it.

You might want to do more of a chop than a pull so it stays in the cup. Season, sauce & fill the cups using a 2 ounce serving scoop.
