I cooked 24 butts for 250 people (football players, coaches, parents, band members, & cheer leaders. There were 200 buns used and a few folks didn't get a bun. I'm going to say that approx 1/2 of the pulled pork was eaten and many went back for 2nds. I was figuring on 6 oz / person just to be safe. The mom's put the meat on the buns and I'm figuring they had around 3 oz / sandwich.
They are freezing the meat and plan on feeding the crowd again. The crowd liked the BBQ and we booked several sales from the event.
Question for you pros. How many butts would you have cooked for this crowd. My butts averaged just under 8 lbs?
