Best Answer

Usually a serving size of meat is 6 ounces, 6 * 250 = 1500 ounces (figuring six ounces per person at 250 people).

1500 ounces / 16 ounces (which is a pound) 93.75 pounds of meat total (approx)

On occasion 8 ounces of meat is served per person. If you want to serve 8 ounces of meat per person then the figures are

8 * 250 = 2000 ounces

2000 / 16 = 125 pounds of meat
