I guess it depends...

Are you serving a side? If yes, how many? Are you making sandwiches? How old is the crowd? (I go with more if it's younger vs less if its a group of 70 year olds vs a bunch of kids (under 12)).

As for keeping it moist, take a look at how others deal with it in Brians thread pulled pork sauced? (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57739)

BTW, do us a favor and swing by 'Cattle Call !!! (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=11)" and introduce your self...

70 sammies at 1/3 lb = 23 lbs cooked pork = 46 lbs uncooked or about 6-8lb butts. :cool:

To keep it moist, add some apple juice. Pour some in the bottom of the pan or mist the pork. Then wrap in foil or foil and clear wrap while reheating. Check the temp. Once it gets to 140 - 160. Serve it up!
