It's about doing quantity at that point though, isn't it? Are you going to make much profit off of one? Not likely, but you will off of several. If you charged an hourly rate just for the time it takes you to cook a brisket, no one would be able to afford it. The general rule of 3 X's your total cost for a gig should leave plenty of margin for profit. If it's a fair or other public type event, you have to charge per plate or lb and hope you sell it all to make your money back and then some.
