I yield about 55-60% on pork butts, so it is just a matter of taking your yield, your portion size, and the number of portions into the equation.
This is spot on for cooked yields, 1/3 pound of pork or slightly more is a satisfying meal for most people and lot's of them will pass on the bun these days with the keto thing being so popular.

We take home lots of unused buns at large events lately.
