Default What would you charge??

I have a gig coming up and I'm curious what you would charge for the following:

150 lb pig
60 racks 4.5 lb spare ribs cut down to St. Louis and rib tips served as appetizer
30 5 lb chickens
beans and cole slaw
paper goods, etc.

cooked onsite

Also, how many people (big eaters) would you expect to feed with that?

Thanks.

I just don't think there is enough info to determine the price.
What are his costs? How many guests? How many helpers needed?
Losts of variables

Default here are my thoughts

600 onsite roasting
1000 for the pig
1080 for the ribs
900 chicken
350 sides
200 paper goods and misc

4130

this is based on dropping the food off hot and butchering the pig there.

We don't do whole hogs. (to be honest, never been asked.) So, I'm curious how much staff you would use for this size gig.

My cost on the pig would be approx $200.00 from Pigs R Us (Garner Ranch) in Yuba City, California. The pig is cleaned and ready to cook when I pick it up. I think OC Pig Assasin may be slightly high on the whole pig and very high on the chicken. There are variables also---how labor intensive are the side dishes? Is this a buffet line or being served? Is the pig going to be stuffed? How far do you have to travel?

That amount of food would feed 250 easy and I would be around at 17.00 a head so $4250 Oc isn't high a pig that size here is $250 before cooking so I would be around $800 just for that.His cost may be higher in NJ

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.

So you would allocate slightly less than 3 oz pig, slightly less than 3 ribs and 1.2 pieces of chicken (I cut birds into 10 pieces) per person? That seems very reasonable, but the fact that they are heavy eaters makes me a bit nervous. It's a random factor that screws ups my estimates.

We would be around $3,100 for the gig with 3 lines and 6 peeps plus myself to serve the pig. lol, would love to get a gig like this if I had all the equipment to pull it off. I'd spend more on rental costs than the gig would bring in...
