I guess my question is what did the customer say they wanted done with the butt?
I run into the situation often where I'm told the party is for 100 and 10-15 just don't show up... The customer knows that I'm cooking for 100 (I confirm 1 week before) and it's then that I ask what they would like done with any left overs. I explain that I normally make a little extra just to be sure that if more attend that there won't be a shortage. Usually, they ask that I condense it and put it in their fridge. I did have one that asked if I could make 'Doggy Bags'. Once made up it was up to the customer to determine who got them...
