Food Quantity Question
I am cooking for a picnic for a club I am part of. We are having an end of the session picnic, and they asked me to cook for it. We are planning on Pulled Pork and Chicken Thighs. How much of each should I cook? I am looking at roughly 40 people ( still waiting for the final numbers)

There will be other foods there, people bringing salads, side, etc etc etc...

That means 26 lbs raw pork if using butts. That gives you 40 portions at 1/3 lb. each. Most folks figure 1/4 lb. portions when serving more than one meat so this gives you a buffer.

For the chicken, I would cook more than 40 thighs in case someone doesn't eat pork and wants two thighs.
