    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.
