Default 100 folks, how many 10lbs pork butts?

I'm doing my first big gig (to me). It's for the 3rd Annual Tin Can Tourist Rally here in upstate New York, May 20th-23rd (plug). I need to know how many pork butts, 10lbs each, will I need to feed 100+ people one meal? It's a dish to pass so there will be a HUGE amount of sides, I will be providing buns and BBQ sauce as well. Thank you!

I would cook about 65 lbs of raw pork. I don't see a lot of 10lb butts, usually around 8lbs so I'd be cooking 8 butts.

To figure this: 2lbs raw meat=1lb cooked pork.

1/4lb per person x 100 people= 25 lbs cooked pork or 50 lbs of raw meat. As drbbq pointed out, you may want to go on the high side of figures, so I would agree with about 60 lbs of uncooked meat.

Id go with 70, that'll yield ABOUT 35lbs...thats .35lbs a person. I know i can eat at least 8oz, and im sure they'll be plenty of people who will eat more than 1/4lb.

One question; is the line served or self serve? If it's served I would go with the 60# of meat if it is self served I would definitely use the 70# figure.

60-65 lbs, of raw pork is on the money! You should always have more than less.
