What Nick said...

Cooked pork = 50 / 60% of uncooked pork.

So it depends on how big of the serverings of pork are per sammich.

I would do 2 lbs. a person minimum....... as Nick says..........ya can always freeze it! Nuthin' like a good plate of leftover Q on a lazy day.

When you say "heavy eaters" do you mean they eat 2 cheeseburgers at your BBQ's OR they still look for more after the 3rd one? If the later is the case , you might want to go with the 2lbs. per.

I have also noticed that good Q tends to dissapear TWICE as fast when you do an off season cook. Heavy eaters or not.

Is PP going to be the only meat?

Burgers let me say this , these folks can eat 3 tripple whoppers , a exlarge drink , exlarge fries , and then want desert !!!
Yep Pulled pork is all they wanted , thinking of putting in some sauages in as well , my single barrel offset 55 galon drukm grill can hold at least 4 to 5 butts at one time .
