The part in red is all of that other stuff you were refering.

That means that at $12/lb, you have $72 - the $32 for the raw product = $40 roughly. Take away another 20% for incidentals like fuel, rub and such and you're still left with $32. A pretty decent (about 75% by my calculations) profit IMO not counting your time. Or did I miss some thing? These are strictly rough #'s BTW. Just throwing it out there.
A couple of questions though...Are we talking about a catered, private event or a public event like a fair or such? Two different events that require two different price lists. Are you charging enough comparatively based on your expenses and what are you're expectations of a "fair" price for all of the factors involved? Are you looking at this from an hourly rate stand point or an over all price for product stand point?
