I recall this being discussed before, but don't remember the
ratios.

When smoking a 10# butt, for instance, what *would you expect the
finished, bone OUT, pulled pork to weigh?

How does that compare to a brisket, for instance, in your
experience?

30-40% loss on both items would be typical.
I take it you're feeding a crowd. Figure 1/3 pound meat per person if
sides will be served; breads, beans, slaw, salad, spud, veggies and
tofu. Unless, the crowd is a bunch of teenagers; in which case all
bets are off.
Do report back.
