Doing pulled pork and pulled chicken for 200 sides no rolls just meat how much you guys think is a fair price

Around here, pork averages $10 a lb cooked, and chicken about $12 a pound cooked.

you will need about 60 pounds of pork about 25 chick in my opin...900?

Those are cooked weights right

You will need 200 1/3 lb servings each.
200 x 1/3 lb = 66 lbs cooked x 50% yield = 132 lbs raw pork
Pulled chickens yield only 35% so you'll have to cook about 190 lbs of chicken!
132 # pork @ $1.10 = $145
190 # chicken @ $1.85 = $351
145 + 351 x 3 (food cost) = $1489.

Thanks bbqbubba i like the way you broke that down.funny because i was figuring 1500 so we were close.never did pulled chicken before so i wasnt sure about the yield.what is best to use for pulled chicken
parts or whole thanksTommy

Whole because they cook easier. Its a LOT of work stripping those carcasses but i would do them while their still warm.

around here, the pulled pork will go faster than chicken..ratio of 3-1 on what the people will take..and doing a whole chicken??? Use boneless, tasty, and easy to shred...I am too lazy to even shred one whole chicken to make soup for my self...Spend your time working more efficiently
60 pounds of pulled pork will make about 180 samies...
25 pounds of chicken about 75 samies..
which would eaqual 255 servings...
you have to adjust to the crowd, kids, women, young guys? total pigs? 1 samie each, 2 samies? self serve, you make? Budget?
