Pinging Pigs

I have a Pig Pickin party for 170 people. Do you think a 200lb hoof weight hog and 6 butts will be enough?

200 lbs on the hoof is about 140 lbs dressed meat.

140 lbs dressed will yield 33 - 38% = 46.2 - 53.2 lbs.

46.2 - 53.2 lbs @ 5.33 Oz / portion = 138 - 159 portions.

6 butts @ ? 42 - 48 lbs = 21 - 24 lbs = 63 - 72 portions.

Total portions between 201 and 231 x 5.33 Oz servings.

So you should be good with those figures.

All these figures are purely theoretical, and should be taken as both gospel and with a grain of salt!

I'd do a few extra butts. The hog is going to dress about 130. 140. ( I guess ) better to be safe than sorry! turn your phone on knuckle head!

the great thing about butts is they are cheap and freeze well...
always cook extra.

I would always cook extra also. People tend to bring a guest when they hear whole hog is on the menu. Good luck!
