Default Butts & Brisket

I am cooking for a party at my house on Saturday for about 60 people. I am thinking of cooking three briskests at about 12 lbs. or so and four 8 lb. pork butts. Is this enough to much, your thoughts please.

Should be plenty if your going to have other foods available, usually a half pound per person is enough if there is plenty of side dishes and appetizers.

I think that is more than enough. As MStoney72 stated 1/2 pound per person is the norm per person.

I would suggest to prepare sliders and then whatever sides you plane to serve.

I would also throw some potatoes on the menu. It will definently fill those bellies up!

Don't forget to factor in weight loss of meat during cooking.
Putting beans in chili is just a cheap substitute for enough meat to be called real chili.
