Default question on pork loin

In Aug. I am doing the food for out DU banquet. Last year I did 1 meat and 3 sides(pulled pork, potato salad, beans and cole slaw).
I threw the idea of going with 2 meats this year, pulled pork and thinly sliced pork loin for sandwiches.
I use soezzys calc. but there is nothing on there for pork loin. Im pretty sure the yield is pretty high but not sure how to figure out.
We are doing an all you can eat this year again, we plan on 150 but last year I cooked for 225 and it came out damn close.

Thanks in advance,

Ken

pork loin yield if full loin cut in half for cooking is almost 100% so just use the raw weight and add 5% to be safe.

I agree with ford.

Just a thought. If your serving 150 and cooking for 225 and almost running out, your calculations are way off.

I'd suggest trying the TK method pork loin in the recipe section, no reason to slice it thin when it's that tender. The loin and the pork butt do have similar flavors, maybe do a different meat with the loin like chopped beef shoulder (or Duck!).

Bubba, it's an all you can eat dinner....lots of duck and goose hunters with free beer in their gut. I thought padding it by 75 people for the all you could eat was o.k.
I ended up with 1 1/2 butts left over last year....I thought I figured pretty close????
