Question Catering for my Church

Our church is wanting me to smoke some BBQ but Im not sure how many Boston Butts I need to cook. Serving about 150 to 160 people of all ages. I do know that some of them will not be eating just BBQ as I will be smoking some chicken as well but I would like to get some help on this.

Thanks

At 5 oz/person, and 50% loss, that's 12.8 Eight pound butts.

Most of the time, 4 oz a person is sufficient, which is 10 butts.

On the less expensive proteins, like Butts and Chicken, I have been siding on the "some leftovers are ok with me" side of things, and doing 5 oz a person...and having leftovers!

There are 2 cooking calculators guys have shared on this page, and they are a great place to get you going the right direction.
