Individuals must also take side items into consideration when serving pulled pork at an event. For example, if a hot side item is being served alongside the pulled pork, the hostess must purchase about 1/3 pound of the hot side item per person. If a cold dish is being served alongside the pulled pork, the hostess must purchase about 1/4 pound of that item to serve with the meat. If the hostess serves more hot and cold side items, the amount of pulled pork that the guests consume is less than if only one side item is served.
