$600.00 is our minimum for a pig.
Pork butts would be much cheaper.

I would be be around that also. The butt thing is a good option but I offered that to a few people that were set on the pig and they don't mind paying for it. Good luck!!

What size pig are you thinking of doing? How much are whole pigs in your area? I can get whole pigs for .79 cents a pound so a 100 pounder would be $79 my time and equipment would be around $300 so total for this would be $379 plus tax and $40 delivery anything after that is gravy!

Deni, you'd spend 12 hrs prepping, cooking, pulling & delivering a pig for $300 ?

Thanks for all the info everyone...
I was thinking about doing a 100 pounder... In the summer he in PA they were going for $1.69 a pound If I were to do butts, How much butts would I need and how much would I charge for that???

Thanks

90 people-1/2 pound cooked meat per person=90lbs of pork butts at $0.98/lb.
Yield is 45lbs. of pulled pork @ $12/lb
Charge $475 drop off the meat and collect your money.

What about sauce? Don't forget to add that to the charge.

90 people, is 90lbs of uncooked pork at least. I know $12.99 a pound delivered isnt out of the ordinary, and 600 bucks is about the least id take for 12 hrs of work and product

If you are delivering in pans why do they care if it's a pig or butts? Butts would be a lot less work.
60-80 lbs of butts should do 90 people fine.

I'd go $475 for the butts & $600 for the pig

I have a supplier that gets me the unwanted pigs, the ones that are butt ugly, maybe missing a hind leg or tears in the skin. It is alot easier for me to cook pigs because I don't have to babysit them, I smoke them out back while I am open for business. That price is for a pig that is cut up in disposable pans. I also would talk them into the pork butts and if they want to see a smoked pigs' head you can find one cheap at a real butcher shop.

Sometimes called "ruptures". Be careful serving these. Many times you cannot get these passed by a USDA inspector.

I hate cooking pigs! I like the idea of the head smoked and served with butts!

Thanks for all the help... :-P Question: Someone mentioned that I would need a 1/2 lbs person. Is the 1/2 a pound of meat per person based on 2 - 4oz servings of cooked meat for each???

I think I'm going to go with the butts... I talked to my butcher and he told me I should yield about 5.5 lbs of meat out of a 7-8lb bone-in butt and get about 4-5 servings per pound. I would need about 23 lbs of cooked pork to feed 90 if all ate just one sammy. It would be about 46 lbs of raw weight.Do I have this correct?

I have to ask the people how many sammies they a counting on having for each person and if there is going to be any other main foods...

Thanks again... Happy Monday!!!

I get about a 50% yield out of butts. 2 butts at 15 lbs actually give between 7.5 & 8 lbs.

Servings - if it's the only meat I use a kaiser bun and 5 oz of meat per person. If there are more meats than the 4 inch buns and about 4 oz for a real full sammy.

90 x 5 = 450 oz cooked = 900 raw = 56 lbs = 1 case or 8 butts.
