I figure on loosin 50% a the raw product. So 50 1/4 lb sammies needs 12 1/2 pounds a cooked meat er 25 pounds a raw butts. Know, that be one sammie per person, how many sammies ya wan't? I always add another 10% just ta be safe.

Well hold on here, are you making the sammies? Or just going to have a hotel pan out there so they can serve themselves. Whole different deal if you just chuck a pan out there!

This is what I used on cheap burger buns.

Made quick work of cranking them out! (I have four of them) No guess work, a scale tells you how much a hotel pan weighs, portion control is key.
I always sauced before serving, bumps up the weight, and your not spending a ton of money on GALLONS of sauce as the folk around here like to use when a pump gallon of sauce is out there. Get a few bottles of hot sauce and stash them. Anyone asks for more sauce Just, just tell them that's all ya got. Sure, some will use it, but it makes them beat feet so you can sell out. I kept a few extra bottles of sauce (hidden) on cater jobs. If they ask, hand them the bottle. Put a gallon out? Nope, they would hammer it dry.
