pork butts are economical and forgiving and yield a lot of quality product.
Who doesn't like a good pulled pork sandwich!
It's also a plus because you can cook it ahead of time and it reheats well.
Mix up some simple slaw and they will love you!

Pulled pork and chicken are the most bang for the buck and they are very forgiving as far as prep and cooking.Ribs for a crowd will get pretty pricey.

Pork loins are another economical way to go and are also great if you're pushed for time. You can smoke them for a few hours to 150 degrees, sear them over direct heat and get great flavor. Each one will yield 25-30 slices depending on how thick you slice them and can make great sandwiches.
