What are his costs? How many guests? How many helpers needed?
Losts of variables
The question was what would YOU charge given these specific quantities. Also, how many big eaters would all of this feed?

Thanks for the breakdown. I think you may be low on the ribs and high on the chicken, but they offset.

Pig is pretty much set it and forget it. We need a dedicated person to carve so we will do this one with 5, maybe 6 if my knee doesn't improve

Slaw and beans - 3-4 hours prep at most. A buffet line with service for the initial crush, then self service for stragglers and 2nd helpings. Not stuffed and 20 minute drive.
