How many pounds of meat do I need for 70 people?
Also to know is, how many pounds of meat do you need per person?
When Meat Is the Main: When cooking something like steak, roast, chicken, or pork, where meat is the main feature of the meal and paired with a few side dishes, we recommend about 1/2 pound (eight ounces) per person, up to 3/4 (12 ounces) pound for bigger appetites and those who love leftovers.
Beside above, how many pounds of chicken do I need for 50 people? Purchase 8 ounces of bone-in poultry per person (25 pounds), and 5 to 6 ounces of boneless chicken per person (15.65 to 18.75 pounds), to provide 4 to 5 ounces of cooked meat for each serving.
Furthermore, how much meat do I need for 200 people?
200 people a 1/3 lb pp = 66 lbs cooked or 132 lbs of raw FOR EACH MEAT. Thats about 19 butts and 11 briskets, You have room to cook that much? If you go 3 meats, 1/4 lb pp is plenty with sides.
How many people will a 10 pound pork shoulder feed?
For pulled pork, the standard rule of thumb is one-third to one-half pound of meat per person. When cooked and shredded, a bone-in pork shoulder will lose around 40 percent of its weight. For example, a raw 10-pound pork shoulder (or two 5-pounders) will yield about 6 pounds of finished meat, serving 12 to 18 people.
