I have been offered my 1st catering gig at a local sports bar for Super Bowl. I was planning on 50 people all you can eat and wondering how much meat to cook. I was planning on brisket and pulled pork sandwiches. Any help on the amount of meat?

I'll try to help, the basic yield for BBQ is about 50%. Assuming you are going to feed 50 hungry football fans you would need about 50 pounds of raw product to get two 4 ounce sandwiches per person. I would cook two packer briskets and four pork butts. For me thats about 24 pounds of brisket and 32 pounds of pork (pork is cheap) which should be plenty. I also assume there will be other munchies and side dishes but most fan's gorge themselves at the Super Bowel. Good Luck!!!
