Default Q for 25 - 30 Guests

Hey Guys, This is not a catering gig just a B-Day party at the house. I'm planning on Ribs and Pulled Pork. I don't want to many leftovers but on the other hand I don't want be caught short either. How many racks of ribs and pork butts should I get? I was guessing about 8 Racks and 4 Butts. Thanks for any input.

What else are you having with the Butt and Ribs. If you are having a few sides I'd say one rack of ribs and one pound of pulled pork for every three guests. So if I was having 30 guests I would cook ten racks of ribs and two eight - nine lbs butts.

Are these all adults, or some kids? Men and women? I calculate a serving of ribs as 4 bones and a serving of pork as 1/4 lb cooked. If you don't want leftovers I would be looking somewhere around 6 racks of ribs and an 8lb pork butt. That would be cutting it pretty close. I think 4 butts is way too much. 8 racks and 2 7lb butts should be plenty. Does depend on the number of sides.

I cooked 3 10lb butts this past weekend for about 50 people and had plenty left over. 4 butts would be way too much I think. I would shoot for about 20 - 25lbs pork shoulder (uncooked) and 6 -8 racks of ribs sounds about right. This may need to be adjusted giving consideration for sides and number of kids included in the final guest count.

If you have leftovers, give it to guests to talk home. Get a few Ziplock freezer bags and send home a gift pack.

Thanks for the help. All guests will be adults and there will be alot of sides. Kind of like a BBQ potluck but I'm doing all the meat. BTW leftovers not a bad thing as long as I get them LOL
