About how much time from prep to clean did it take? How many sammies did you sell? Just curious. Thanks Don!

Prep time on butts doesn't take long. I trim off the false fat cap and the stringy fat beween the two large muscles. rub and toss in the cooker. I got up once during the night to wrap and once to take them out of the smoker. into a metal pan and cover with foil, put in the holding cooler and pulled them as I needed them. Clean up was easy, roasting pan, tongs, spatula, sauce bottles and the metal pans. Most of went in the dishwasher. I went through 26 dozen buns with the pork and burgers and sold another 15lbs of pork by itself. Each day I had less then two lbs left at the end of the day. I cooked a case of butts each night(Fri and Sat) next time I'll do them all at the same time.

i wouldn't call it "giving it away". i don't weigh out a sammie- it's an ice cream scoop full, i have a deal w/ the bakery (1doz burger buns for $1),iced tea or lemonade in my 6 gal cambros is very cheap & well, we can discuss breakdowns but i figger labor & ttl. materials i'm out maybe $1.50 per meal for $6.00. plain sammie in wrapper $3.50
now caterings are different because the service & setup is different.
this is walk up concession @ a moto-x track or side of road.
