Default Catering amount?

I as always need some more advice. This may already be posted but I could not find the link.

When you do a gig and for example say Two meats and Two sides. If the meat is Spares and pork what are the amounts you give for each person?

Do you go by bones or half racks? How many ounces of pork.

As a matter of fact I am a rocket scientist!

With two meats and two sides, two bones and 5oz of pork is plenty unless it's a construction crew or the like...

Put the sides first, then the pork, then pile two ribs on top...

On 2 meat meals i go 3 bones and 1/3 lb(5.3 oz) pork per person.
It may seem a tad high but i like the customers to have plenty of food.
I don't bother with the how many lite eaters or men under 16 etc, etc"
This formula always works for me!
