I always figure a pound raw per person for somethin under 100 people. That is enough for some left overs. Never have I run out.

I usually get about 55-60% cooked weight but use 55%, then figure 4 sandwiches per pound for regular buns and 3/lb for larger buns or no buns. Then factor in the kind of eaters I'll have (high school football players vs little ole ladies) and cook a little extra just in case.

JB, I do 1/4 pound sammies, so 4 per pound a cooked meat. I always figure 50% loss fer cookin.

So figure how many sammies ya wanna serve, we'll use 100 fer example, that'd be 25 lbs a cooked meat er 50 pounds raw. I always add 10% fer a little extra. Better to much then to little.

Portion control is key, make sure ya servin 4 oz. a meat cause it can runaway real quick!

Nobody never ever complained bout a 1/4 pound a meat on the bun, most times folks er commentin how much meat there is not how little!

Good luck buddy!
