I should think so. What are you planning to serve with it?

I agree with Chef June. I usually calculate 1/2 pound per person even counting the bone. The bone will also add more flavor.

Roasted potatoes, broccoli salad, rolls, dessert (of course!) thank you so much for your reply!

I would have to rethink that then, wouldn't, I!

If it's a pork shoulder, I usually calculate that the cooked meat will end up being about half of the total weight, or perhaps a bit less (and even less if you bought it with the skin attached). So each person would easily get a 4- to 5-oz serving - with your side dishes and everything else you serve, it should be fine.

Thank you all! I had plenty of meat and even had leftovers.
