I would aim for one pound per person (weight before cooking). Generally speaking cooked pork makes good leftovers and freezes well, no harm if you have extra.

Thank you! Like I said, I haven't made them in ages. My mom used to make them for them all the time. I was thinking about buying 8 lbs so I think I'll stick with that. I do remember that the leftovers made awesome sandwiches once you pull that meat off the bone. Thanks again!

You two must have access to much meatier pork neck bones. If I bought a one lb. neck bone, it would yield about 3 ounces of meat. I've bought them from 3 different sources.

I'm going to our outdoor market first thing in the morning. Their neck bones are really meaty (I've cooked them on the grill) and they run about .69 or so a lb. You can pick out a few very large whole neck bones and they'll chop them up for you into manageable (still nice-size) pieces. I've decided to buy about 12 lbs because as CV mentioned they do freeze well and we'll make sandwiches with any left over.

Mine look similar to this. I use them to make a ramen type soup on this site. They have a little more meat than these, but not by a lot.

Mine are large like this. The butcher cuts them up into 3 pieces or whatever I ask for.

Yes, much meatier. I'm going to check with my farmer or the farmers market.

Your farmer's market or local butcher can probably take care of you. Our outdoor market is HUGE and there are several butchers/shops that sell pork neck bones, fresh & smoked. They're priced reasonably and like I said they'll cut them to order. I've purchase really large pork neck bones and had the butcher cut them into maybe 2 pieces. They look very inviting on the grill! lol Good luck. Hope you find some whoppers.
