i know it can be scary, but the suggestion above of 1/4 to a 1/3 is actually right in line with my experience of routinely cooking for crowds ranging to 60-200 people.

and honestly, closer to 1/4 per person is really a bit more accurate when you have lots of sides......BUT, i would always rather have too much than too little, so I typically settle on the 1/3 pound of finished meat per person for these events.

and that assumption is made on the belief that the mix will be male and female and "normal" eaters......in other words, if you are cooking for a high school football team then 1/2 pound of better would be more in line......so you got to know your room, so to speak.
