Well I won't speak for Dave but, depends on the number of meats on this end. In Texas, regardless if I have one or more, I always calculate 1/3lb with brisket. And that is cooked. Girls may eat less, guys probably eat more. Running out of beef down here is grounds for hanging...
The chicken number is what I was originally asking about. Last thing I did, they said they had bird left over, but again, if that one person, say the one who signs the check, loves chicken, I have to assume 1 piece of some type per individual.
an entire breast with wing is a bunch of yardbird as is a leg quarter. This entire journey is about managing food costs IMHO. If I'm cooking too much, I'm costing myself money.
