Planning a special event and want a pig for pickin'? Look no further -- we have BBQ hogs of various sizes throughout the year.
When planning your BBQ, here are a few things to remember:
- The dressed weight (also known as carcass weight or hang weight) is about 70% of the animals' live weight (on the hoof).
- After slow cooking, you can expect about 50% reduction in weight for the end quantity of usable cooked meat.
- Count on about 1/3 pound of meat per person at a pig pickin' -- adjust according to amount of sides, length of event, etc.
So for example, a hog weighing about 250 pounds live, will yield a 175 pound carcass, which will cook to about 90 pounds of meat, which will feed about 250-275 people. Or for another example, a 150 pound live hog, will yield a 100 pound carcass, which will cook to about 50 pounds of meat, which will feed about 100-125 people.
