@mrstilly: I’d say you need around 4lbs of pork (maybe a little extra for leftovers or second helpings)

and 12 large potatoes.

good luck!

So for 12, with likely leftovers I would do

13-14 lbs of pulled pork (precooked since it cooks down a ton!) You want about 6 ounces oer person of cooked meat. Plus there arent a ton of other food options

6-7 lbs of potatoes

4 lbs carrots

a few really large bowls of salad (although people will eat much less lettuce based salad than a non-lettuce based salad)

I would actualy recommend making a different kind of salad than a traditional lettuce and tomato salad. Maybe a greek salad, sans lettuce (so feta, cucumber, red onion, tomato, pepperoncini, shredded carrots etc)
