Default Yield on a chuckie-Shopping complete

Going to smoke a Chuckie for my office Christmas party. I was thinking about a 10# would yield 70% or 7#. Figuring on 1/4# sammie would give me 28 sammies. Does this sound right? Going to feed about 20 folks. With additional sides and such this may be just about right. Let me know your thoughts.

It sounds right, but from experience I have learned to intentionally go over the amount required as a buffer for the heavy eaters. Worst case scenario is you make someone happy by giving the left-overs away.

Let me say first thing, I am on the "leftovers are good and running out of meat is bad" side.

I would estimate more like 50-60 percent yield and 1/3 lb per serving.

I agree to err on the up side. It's only a few $ per lb so more is better than less. I did one this weekend and the yield was way higher than a brisket or butt. Was kind of surprised. I think you are OK on your 70% assumption but still think you should go a little more. My guess is that people don't get to eat awesome food like this very often (you would be shocked how the other half eats) and there will be some dudes "who just can't stop eating it". There's always a few in a crowd (same people that will talk to you about it in March...."dude, remember that meat you made at the Christmas party?......)

So from the consensus it looks like I need to add more meat. Think I'll do (2) 8# chuckies and bring 4 dozen rolls. This would account for anywhere between a 1/3# - 1/4# sammie. thanks folks.............

whoa. Much more like a butt or a brisket. I would have thought that but mine did not have that much shrinkage. I was suprised. didn't weigh it after but I could tell it wasn't as pronounced as a normal brisket or butt.

Better be safe and go with more meat. Shame

So i picked up a 19.71# chuck roll. Have done this many times and never write anything down Anyway figured I rub it down with coarse salt, pepper, onion, and garlic powder. Rest overnight and then smoke tomorrow until 160* internal then transfer to a pan with yellow peppers, red onions and some beef stock. Cover until finished. Let rest then start pullin. Thanks for the help. I'll post PRON later. Found some really nice Kaiser rolls and horsey sauce to go with it all. Sorry for the phone pic can't find my camera

Sounds like you got it figured out Bluesman. Your co-workers are in for a real treat! Plan on being a hero the next day.

Fon du Lac is not that far of a drive if, ya know, you need some help eating and everything.

Thanks for the offer! But ever since the infamous "Cheez-Wiz/Saran Wrap incident" of 1988, I'm not allowed within the Edgerton city limits anymore.
