If you need 180 five-ounce servings, you need 900 ounces of cooked meat. Divide that by 16 ounces per pound to get 56.25 pounds. But that's the amount you'll have after a 15-percent reduction in weight. In other words, what you're left with after cooking is 85 percent of what you put in the smoker. So divide 56.25 by 0.85 to get 66.17 pounds.
