    Newbie in North Florida

    Just joined the club. My husband has been grilling for years! I mainly was the “gofor” or scut work. I have become interested in starting to cook on the grill. I do have a question. We are cooking for a wedding and need to figure how many pounds of pork butt we need to obtain. Looks like 50 people so far. Could someone help? Is it 1 lb per person or 2? Thanks in advance.

    Change that to 1/2 lb not 2.

      Half pound should be fine unless all the guests are college age males.

    Welcome from Western Massachusetts. You will certainly get your question answered. The experts will have to handle it, which excludes me.

              Welcome to the Pit! I did a 5 year stint in North Florida (Jacksonville) but moved back home a couple years back.

              To answer your question I would plan on 1 pound pre-cooked weight per person. After some minor trimming and cooking weight loss you will probably end up with 1/2-3/4 pounds of meat per person. Most people won't eat 1/2 pound, some will, but you definitely don't want to run out of food at an event like this.

                Welcome to the pit from the California Delta.
                I did a pulled pork cook for about 100. Smoked 70# of butts and had a little left over. If you have sides 1/2 per should be good.

                            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
