This is based on 8oz. of brisket per person and a half rack of spares (6 bones per person); you will need 20lbs. of brisket and 12 slabs of ribs and I would charge about $320 if its a drop off gig. If I had to stay I would charge more of course. Also, you may want to go with 12oz. of brisket and 8 bones per person which equates to 29lbs. of brisket and 16 slabs of ribs. The drop off price for that would be about $370. This is also based on a $2.50 base charge per person. If I think I need to make more then I adjust this amount.

Take a look at my BBQ Catering planner http://www.bbq-review.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10 you can download it to your computer as an Excel file (.xls) or a Zip file (.zip), if you don't have Excel you can follow the links to Open Office a free office suite and the .xls file will open in Open Office Calc.

It is customizable so that you can set most information as you like it.
