    Meat Math..? for the pros

    Gent's
    How many people would a 18 lb prime rib roast feed? Not sure because of the bone how to sort it out.

    Thanks.

    Me.

    On a one-night-feast and a three-day sandwich bender...

    Sorry that I couldn't have been of more help.

    Everything I've seen is 3/4-1 lb/person. Or 1 rib for 2 people...

    So 18-24 people, in theory. (Not a pro. But not a gent, either. )

    if i remember Julia said 1 rib per 2 people.. google how much rib roast per person and a quick review leads me to believe about 1 pound person after shrinkage , trimming of fat and bone you should be left with approx 8 0z per person,, BEware i am not a pro

    They don't have anything for an 18lb roast, but it should be about 13 to 16 adults by their estimates.

    How many are ladies? I tend towards a man a rib, but ladies are usually 2 to a rib. I have a 6 rib roast that will feed 8.

    I'm not a pro but this is the calculation I use more or less.
