We always estimate a 50% loss raw weight to cooked pulled meat. We may over shoot and have more meat than we thought, but I don't know of a time we ran short using that figure.

We charge $9 a pound vacuum sealed. This puts us right in the middle price wise of all of our competition (local q joints) and we sell ours vacuum sealed in the quantity the customer requests. The vacuum sealing gives us a one up on the local joints, and once people have tasted our meat, they seldom go back to the local places.
