How much Meat to cook...
throwing a shindig for my folks' 50th anniversary.

need to feed approx 65 ppl. cooking pulled pork, venison meatloaf and brisket.

any recommendations on pre-cooked weights for the pork and the brisket? i'm doing 10 lbs of meatloaf.

1 pre cooked pound of pulled pork is a good starting point.
Brisket, I'd guess about 3/4 lb of pre cooked meat/person.

I usually figure 1/4 lb cooked PP per person at 40% loss.
Brisket depends on how you trim. I'd say you'll be at a similar loss?

+1 on the above. I done a lunch for 31 the other day and done 4 butts and 3 briskets with sides and had more than enough to go around.
