The Technologically minded have ever been ready to obey one who wields great power. Those who learned the powers of the dark side were quick to exploit this techonology—to make War on Evil Stick Burners. Again and again the dark side has surged forth, like a storm…devouring whole backyards and entire BBQ Competitions. Those who mastered The Dark power became The Dark power. They unleashed destruction, for no other reason to anger the Evil Stick Burners. They despoiled Eggheads…destroyed whole groups of WSM civilizations, and crushed the Elitist charcoal burners. Some of them, I am ashamed to say, have returned to the Evil Stick burner."

How many sides are you serving with the sandwiches?

I'd start with 100# raw, will give about 50 - 60# cooked, enough for 1/3# for sandwich.

I made up this little Pulled Pork FAQ. It Egg based so subtract 30 degs from any of the cooking temps. However there is a 'How Much' formula there.

We do gigs For 150 people all the time. We purchase 75 lbs of Boneless Butts from Costco and there is always plenty left over, even after everyone has 1 - 2 sandwiches. We have only come close to running out once, but there were over 200 people that showed up that time.
