30 lbs raw product or 30 lbs cooked
If cooked...30 lbs will yield 120 4oz servings ~~~ 120 Ok sandwiches..
If cooked...30 lbs will yield 80 6oz servings ~~~ 80 Nice sandwiches.
If Raw.. After trimming, shrinkage during cooking, excess fat, pulling loss, bone etc your yield will be in the 40-60% range...A 8 lb pork butt will yield roughly 3-5 pounds of usable meat.....Figuring a 50% yield ( 4 lbs.of usable meat) ~~ will give you 16 4 oz. sandwiches...or 11 6 oz sandwiches....
The question you need to answer is how many sandwiches will your 100 people eat.
Good luck and Have Fun!
