I would cook about 65# of butt and 68# of brisket (raw). This should yield 12 oz. per person. I normally use this as my protien avarage, but we are feeding Texans! As far as pricing, these are both long cook time items, will you cook on site or off site and deliver? $50.00 in wood and charcoal, $50.00 in spices and the remainder is up to you. Cooking these protiens, 8-9 butts and 6-7 briskets is probably worth $ 600-700 if you purchase the meat.

Hope that this helps.

Just meat is easy $8-9 per pound for pork and $9-11 for the brisket. Meat is not cheap anymore unless you happen to hit a good point in the market.

I hope you meant that the customer purchased the meat.

This comes out to about $10 p/p to buy and cook the meat.
