I list and price my drop offs as Party Packs. In my pricing/menu document it states that each will feed between 25-40 depending on the appetite of the eaters. Each contain 3 pounds slaw (fit perfect in 1/2 pan and that's how I buy it) and around 9 pounds beans (1 #10 can of doctored beans). Customers can group a few together to get a varied menu and feed more.

The cheapest one is $200 and has 8 pounds of pulled pork and 32 buns (buns come in 16 packs). Others include chicken beef and ribs. It's an easy to cook and especially package the food for delivery and is profitable. I sell pork for $11 per pound my cost for slaw $3, beans $6 buns $5. That's less then $100 cost (I know I need to add the slaw and bean juice with a few foil pans) easy profit!

During the week at my stand I usually sell 1-2 and last weekend for graduation weekend I delivered 4 to different parties with 2 of them being double PP'S
