Ballpark you do cost(this is everything, meat, rub, fuel used to smoke ect) x3. The x3 will/should cover your overheads as well your "cost". This will get you in the ballpark then its tweaking

By this calculation your business is making a 66% profit???

I don't imagine you will get many catering deals at that price.

Cost is usually figured at 3x food cost but only including the cost of food. Your other expenses come out of that 66%. Theres other factors that will vary your quote but each job is different.

Your serving 5 meats and 3 sides. You should be easily $20 pp if not a lil higher.
