Figure about 60% yield of cooked meat from whatever sized butt you are cooking. If you're doing 2 meats figure 4oz pulled pork per person and about the same for the brisket after trimming. Alot will also depend on the type of crowd you are feeding.

I have never gotten better than 55% yield on butts... but i do agree with Larry.. 1/4 lb per person cooked if you are serving 2 meats. And yes.. what is your crowd?

LOL! I'm sure everyone's mileage will vary but I usually get closer to 50% myself. I'm sure it depends on what you're cooking on, what temperature you're cooking to, what temperature you're cooking at and what the hog was raised on.

Charlie, I usually figure around 12-15 sammies per butt cooked and 20+ on the briskets. Its a safe bet that way. Good luck my amigo.

I figure a 50% yield on Butts. Usually get a little more but I'd rather have more than less. A 4oz portion should cover your white bun I have a hard time getting that much PP to fit in the bun, especially if it's topped with coleslaw.

THANKS ALL
That is the best way to get your name and your Q out there. Careful or you will find yourself chopping/pulling for HOURS... Then after doing that a couple of times.. you will be selective on how many people you notify that you are cooking.!!!

How much you chargin per pound?? or butt?
