Default Something just not adding up ?

I have to admit I'm new to this. Most everything I do is for fun, but I'm looking into doing a few events now and I'm thinking PP sandwiches but say I do a 8 lb butt (35 % loss) looking at 1/4 lb sandwiches that only nets 20 per butt ((scratches head)) I have cooked 100s of butts and I know they yield way more then that ...were am I going wrong ...thanks

I use a yield of 45% loss. The way I remember is this..1 pound will make two 1/4 lb sammys. So a 8 lb butt should yield 16 sammys.

I figure mt yield on 50% yes it is more like 60-65% but sometimes it is 50% and the 10% buffer is always nice to have. I never get a better yield than 65%

To be honest I've always gotten anywhere between 18-24 sandwiches from an 8 pound butt. So your numbers aren't off that much.
