and some children.
2) How much to charge. I am only cooking the meat and it will be picked
up at my house. Is 2 to t 1/2 times my cost about right?
If sides, etc are being served then 1/3lb is a good serving. Since you are not serving you have no way to control portion size. In this case we have the customer make the decision on serving size and then order X number of servings. This takes the "you didn't supply enough" response out of the mix. We have the customer sign a contract that states the total number of servings, and the serving size, to be delivered at said total price.
Your price sounds reasonable but be sure to include ALL costs. Don't forget items used (any that are applicable) such as foil, wood, injection, etc.
