Good chart, Cappy....it confirms my finding of 30% of live wt. It also compares to a chart from an outfit in south Philly that sells hogs.

How accurate is 1/3 of a pound per person?????????? Doesn't sound like much.

look, if it's a cater gig where servers give the portions,
it's ok.
However, if it's a self serve deal, people will take more
than half a pound if you don't have enough sides to fill
up the plate before they get there.

Pig pickins should be about the pork, and I'm cool with that.
If they want to eat 3/4 lbs of meat, good, that means I did a
good job.


A lot depends on the crowd...family crowd, the ratio works well.
Steel workers, better cook 2 pigs!
