Default Pulled Pork slider portioning

What is the standard portion for sliders? I'm doing a corporate open house and they want sliders but I can't remember what the pulled pork portion size is since I forgot to write it down the last time I did one:(

What ever looks right on the bread/buns you are using. Make one and see how much you need. For me a pp appetizer portion is approx 2 oz of any meat. Depending on the appetizer, this may be 1 or many pp.

I would portion my sliders based on the available buns. Based on the slider size buns we have available here our sliders are 2-2 1/2 oz.

This doesnt answer your question, but just a tip for your bread. The yeast rolls that Sam's sells are cheap. Like less than $5 for a 36 count bag. You will have to split them yourself, but with a decent serrated knife you can get em all done in a few minutes.

P.S. they are awesome with pulled pork. We have two people's choice awards last year to prove it ;D

I do the same thing. Just takes a couple of minutes to split a bag full. 2oz of PP work fine with these rolls.
