How much to cook
Ribs = 8 slabs cut into 3 bones
Pork = 8 lbs raw s/b about 5 cooked
1/4 chickens = no idea on how many. A dozen or more maybe?
They will picked up. I was thinking 8 -10 per head. What do you guys think.
I'm asuming that sides will be on site so.....
7 racks of spares
10 lbs of butts
20 pcs of chicken
Thats MORE than enough food with sides added in.
Take your meat price (market price, don't pass on your deals) + supplies and times by 3 will give you a fair starting point.
Like BBS said, NEVER sell yourself short.
Yes, you could go as high as 17-18.00 a person but that is usually reserved for on site cooking and serving.
A 20 person cook is a great start to find out all the little things you need to have and do before taking on a BIG job!
Good luck bro and keep us updated!
