WE do 6.00 for a chicken, pulled pork sandwich, we do 7.00 for a brisket.

The way we have found to the greatest profit when vending or roadside, is to offer a
"Meal Deal" So we will offer a pulled pork, or chicken sandwhich with side and drink for $7.00. We aren't making as much on the sides or drink as we would selling them individually, but we have increased the # of people we sell to. I guess you would call this a volume increase.

We also do a "Meal Deal" with a chopped beef sandwich, drink and chips for $6. We don't make much on the sides, but then again, they aren't coming to us for slaw and beans. They are there for the smoked meats. Our sides are a 4oz. serving and go for $1. We are a fairly new bbq trailer ( opened last April) and check the local prices of the competition before we price anything. Our customers are increasing and we live in a fairly small town, (population around 8,000).

What are your costs? You should know those before you price anything. That way you don't have to raise prices once you figure out you are not charging enough. When you find out your food cost, the rule of thumb is 3x your cost.
