I have been asked to cook a pork butt for a birthday party. How much would you charge?
Thanks! Merry. Christmas

Depends how much you want to make(or lose) on the deal. You figure in the cost of the meat, charcoal, seasoning, and then decide how much your time is worth.I wouldn't do it for less than $6 a pound starting weight, and that would be a pretty good deal.

if its a job watch out, ya may lose the fun. I charge 7.50 bucks a pound with sauce extra. but we are also talking offsetting our costs on containers and such.

this is prolly a tad late.. but what i do is i charge $30 for a cooked and processed butt. i usually cook 8#ers and get between 4-5 lbs. so thats $7.50 a pound with anything over 4 is a bonus. if i were a resturaunt then by the pound fine. but i don't wanna have extra laying around. BUTT, for the $30 i only give up to 5#. and i toss in a pint of sauce.

I've heard the same, 3.5-4 times raw product.

Depending on size of crowd, be careful. I did just the meat for a group of 300 a couple yrs back. I was so burned out I didn't want to see another brisket or butt, ever! Small crowds are fine, up to 50, over that I'd charge them an arm and a leg and have an eye on their kidney or liver to take care of the damage you'll do to yours.:msn-wink::roflmaoha0:

I must say it is fun, but very stressful. Everyone wants to put out their best.

Good luck:thumbs up:
