Yeah, how do you know he stored it properly before giving it to you? Not a lot of homes have refrigeration for 32 butts. How do you know how old they are? If people get sick, whose fault is it?

Sometimes people request me for gigs where I just bring my grill and cook their food, and at tailgates sometimes some guests with dietary issues bring their own food and ask me to cook it. I decline and explain my reasons why. Besides, my fee for this would be way too high, lol.

I can do it in 1 cook with some room to spare. I think I've done 44 at once on my smoker. Thanks.

He is a chef and has over scheduled/promised himself, I'm going to trust that he is taking proper care of the meat.

Butts only and your not pulling and they are picking them up and you have no desire to be in business then I'd say $35-$40 per butt. I'd be at $11.95lb myself though.

Yep, butts only, not pulling but I said I would deliver. It isn't that I do not have any desire to be in business it's just that this isn't a business for me and I have done several cooks recently for 150+ people, two that were back to back weekends, all of which included sides. I am tired! Plus, this is on Memorial Day weekend.

I appreciate the input from all of you, everybody is pretty much inline with what I quoted. I did take in to account the input from you guys before quoting. They can take it or leave it, I'm fine either way.
