Where is your $2,500 in hard costs?

Even if you went with 1/4lb per person you'd need roughly 450lbs. That's roughtly 900lbs of raw pork. 900 X $1.29 per lb = $1,169.00 (I could get the pork here for $.99lb)

Maybe I'm missing something. Could you outline your costs a little for us?

Also, what would I charge? If this was a group of airmen and their families and the airmen were either leaving for Iraq/Afghastan or returning from I'd do it for the cost of the meat.
Is it 1500 Airmen, or Airmen and families? May need to get a tighter count, but 900 to 1000 lbs of pork would be my number as well @ $1.29/lb = $1290.00. Approx 140 butts to cook, pan and foil. Allow for 15 gallons of sauce. Hard cost (without my time) would seem to be around $1600 - 1700. Add in plates, napkins, utensils, sterno and still seems like under $2k. (I would charge for costs only, and show my time at an hourly rate as a donation and Karma)
