20 people, and 15-20lbs of raw pork will be enough. The rough safe estimate is that you get a 50% yield per pork butt. Also with sides the average person will eat 1/4lb of meat. So if the party has a bunch of sides, he can safely get away with cooking 10lbs of raw pork (5lb yield). Cooking enough to produce 7-10lbs of cooked pork will feed 20 people without blinking an eye and having plenty more for leftovers.
