Angry Labor Day Pig cook

I'm planning on doing a pig on Labor Day for family and friends. About how many people will a 50 lb pig feed? Thanks!

As i understand it, the normal calculation is 1# uncooked whole pig per person, so 50# should feed 50 people. I've done a couple 60# pigs and on one occasion there were 60 or so folks here and it worked out well - had enough for a few sammiches the next day too.

Did you mop it? If so what were the ingredients if you care to share. I plan to use a rub I bought from lowes and but a little brown sugar on the pig as well. Then inject with apple juice , cider vinegar, salt , sugar worches.

I don't have any solid yield numbers, but if you're worried about having enough meat, i'd suggest tossing a few links of sausage on the cooker to up your food volume. won't add to your cook time, but will increase the amount of food you have to offer.

My last was about 65#, fed 35 and only used 1/2 the pig so I'm thinking you should easily get 50-60 fed. I use a pump up spray bottle 50/50 apple juice and ACV in the last 2-3 hours of the cook.
