Let me get this right...... Who is actually paying the bill? Is it the same folks that pay $400 for a toilet seat or hammer? I know how this works, they spend every sent they are authorized. If you don't get it Haliburton or someone like them will.

I would not cut the price, figure out what the meat costs, then add your profit. How many hours will this cook/preparation consume? I like to work on $1k a day profit. You will not believe the amount of work this cook is going to be. Work up a spread sheet and do your best to figure it out. I can send you one of mine, just ask. Then add 10%. Don't forget to add in the cost of wear and tear on your pit. Everything needs to be figured into the cost of a job. I have said many times on this forum, "if you lowball to get a job, then not only are you not making money, you are hurting the catering industry as a whole". That is why so many restaurants go out of business every year.
