That menu for us would be between around $12.
Even with the numbers above, you'll have plenty of leftovers...which I never have a problem getting rid of
Thanks! I used the catering calculator for the numbers and I thought 50lbs of beans was a little to much, But before I put a bid together I wanted to make sure I was at least in the ball park.
It is cheap and normally not what I would charge either. Just trying to give them a discount since I belong to the group and like anyone else right now money is tight and I for one would rather eat my Q then the hotels boiled food they call Q
Any better way to figure your numbers. I figure you can feed 10-12 people on a 8lb butt and 8-10 on a 12lb brisket, does that sound right?
