Are you supplying just the hog or all the fixins as well?


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

I have access to hogs thru a local supplier. I was thinking they buy the pig ill cook it. Limiting my responsability just dont know what a fair price would be. Or at least a ball park figure to work from.

I made a little cheat sheet that works for most stuff. I buy the stuff and this is what I charge. If I take my rig it is another $100.00 and $25.00 per hour on site. Image

There is an estimated weight to the right of each item. I don't do whole hogs. I don't even like the idea.

Looks like I'm selling my self short. I need to run numbers like you did.
Just how much portion per person did you figure on each meat ??

This has changed a lot since then. It is based on 1/3# per person. I charge by the item now just 100.00 for brisket and 65 for butt and 30 for sides and so on.
