And For My 2nd Catering Event....
 
That was quick. The Parents 50th dinner inspired me to go further with it. So I offered my services to cater the next monthly safety bbq at work. The Foreman who is a good Buddy loves my cooking and jumped at the idea. I told Him I'd like to do bbq beef sammies with potato salad and beans. (He said the beans would have to have bacon grease in 'em :-P). There are about 22 People on the crew. Not too many heavy eaters.

I figured I'd smoke the appropriate amount of brisket unless Someone can tell me a better cut for bbq beef sammies. Also what should I clear money wise after cost.

You might consider chuck if it is cheaper than brisket. Pulled or sliced chuck is some good stuff.

Sounds like a very good gig for you.

Definetly consider the chuckie, if it is comparable to a brisket I would go that route. Standard rule of thumb is 3 times your cost.

Yep, I support this statement, but YMMV:biggrin:

Ya if your doing pulled sammies go with whatever is cheaper for you chuck or brisket. However if you are planing on doing sliced sammies, then you need to use brisket imo.

It's gotta a be a CHUCKIE!

Better than brisket for pulled sammies.

Bbq Bubba 02-20-2009 08:09 AM

IMO.....Pulled brisket means overcooked brisket.

Chuckies are the king of pulled beef!

Listen to Bubba...there's no substitution for experience.

I'll be going to Cash and Carry this weekend and will price the chuck. I love chuck and didn't think of that. Thanks for the words of wisdom.

Also go to your butcher and see if he can get you the whole trimmed chuck roll. Better price and I think it comes out better.

I'm pretty sure they have the whole thing at C&C.

Wesman61 02-26-2009 06:14 AM

Well I got the go-ahead from The Plant Manager. They'll pay $7.00 per person @ 22 People= $154.00. They have 20-24lb chuck rolls a C&C for $179.00/lb. I'll be making potato salad and baked beans. I should be able to get every thing for around $80.00. I also have a killer recipe for cole slaw. May throw that in too. Should be fun.

Seems like a lot of work for $74 profit.

I know. I'm just starting out on this. I don't mind doing a few trial runs to see if it's something I want to go farther with. And besides, it's either that or the usual chinese or Blimpy's. :icon_frow

Just a thought, but maybe go with Pulled Pork, a lil cheaper, make Keri C's beans and but the salad and doctor it up.
You'll have 18 hrs alone in the Chuck cook.
