I figure 1# per person raw weightfor butts. If you are handling the sides too, I figure 4oz per person. Hope it helps.

I would spend some time perusing the catering and cooking for the masses forum posts going back a few months. Lots of help there'

Pork loin, I assume you mean boneless, you can figure 3/4 lb uncooked (or 2/3lb brined, uncooked), pork butt, bone-in, I would go with Paulie's number. Are you not going to offer something other than pork? With 200 people, they may be some non-pork eaters.

Good luck that's a big crowd to cook for.

Catch up on the catering for the masses section, some great info in there.
