How much pulled pork will 26 pounds (12 Kg) of raw boneless pork butt make?
I am making this in several crock-pots. This is my first time making pulled pork for a large crowd
Each Kg (2.2 lb) is will result in at least 0.6 Kg (1.3 lb) of pulled pork (a similar amount for beef)
A large dinner serving is 200 g (8 oz), or a typical dinner burrito requires 50 g, budget two burritos per person
There is a 20% to 40% loss by weight of fat and fluid depending on quality of pork and cooking method and temperature
Remember not to stuff your crock-pot above the inner rim, or it will overflow with the release of fat and fluids. Most crock-pots will not take more than 4 to 5 Kg (10 to 22 lb) of meat, and will take 20 to 24 hours to cook this amount on low
We produced pulled pork for burritos for 50 people last week, 5 Kg in one large crock-pot, 24 hours on low. The group eat a proper mixed diet, so meat serving size less than the typical North American slab. It was perfect :-)
