I knew we were going to have some friends over on the 4th and that I would be grilling. I was thinking I would get away with smoking two or three racks of ribs. Come to find out the count is up to 25, so ribs are out of the question.

I'm thinking pork shoulders and make pulled pork sandwiches. How many lbs of meat do you think I need to feed ~25 folks?

Do you think 1/2 lbs per person? There will only be a handful of kids, the rest are adults.

I was thinking about trying one of the fatty's posted earlier. I've never tried one, but I was thinking I could maybe smoke it while the pork shoulder is resting. That may not be enough time though.

I think an 8-10 lb. bone-in shoulder should do just fine.

I think 3 to 4 servings a pound - depending on sides. Remember when you smoke you can lose a hefty 30%+ from raw weight.
Any time you can get out to hunt, is a good day to hunt.
