For 40 adult?
1 large packer (14lbs or more?)
2-4 butts (shooting for 25-30lbs uncooked)
I'd do 3-4 butts
4lbs dried pasta for homemade mac & cheese
Depends on recipe I guess
7-10lbs canned pork and beans (to be doctored, probably into Keri's Hog Apple)
Way too much, 2- 10# cans of beans and half a 10#can of apples or peaches and you will have a lot left over.
I use peaches in syrup instead of peach pie filling the cost is way less and turns out just as good. You could do apples instead.
