So how do you go about priceing sides and figuring portion size for sides? Got an offer to do a wedding for around 120. They want pulled pork, brisket and sausage. The sides are my big problem they want baked beans, slaw and tator salad. I can handle making that its just how do you figure amount and price. It is going to be a buffet set up with folks serving them selves. She doesn't want serving help. :confused:

I would buy the sides and do my own doctoring.
I would figure sides, cost of doctoring and multiple X 3, the same way I figure the cost of the meat.
I hope im not out of line here but you must cover your expenses and make some kind of profit.

It is an Excel spreadsheet. Do you have Microsoft Office?

Not trying to be a smart arse, but if you are buying the baked beans in the can or the slaw already shredded in the bag, the serving sides are on the back.:lol:

You can X 3 your cost as Bull suggested or feel free and steal pricing from my or someone elses website.

Smoke, no biggie, I think I'm trying to make harder that it needs to be. I'll look at the package's for guidance. Thanks!
