Default Qing for dollars

So MrsMista calls me from the hospital and tells me that the family with the baby across from Morgan is having a baby shower. Grandpa was supposed to cook some ribs but flaked at the last minute. The nurses had been talking about my ribs (I took them some one night. Wonder why Morgan gets great care?) so she asked MrsMista if I could cook the ribs for them.

Basically, they bought 7 racks of ribs and they just want me to cook and deliver them. I told them I can cook them Saturday and deliver them Saturday night for the Sunday baby shower. Since I'm not shopping or buying the meat, I am charging $10/rack.

Am I under charging?

Well its nice that you can sit at the house and watch the Dodgers take a whuppin while they cook....

Thats if you have finished converting Morgan's bedroom!!

I think its a fair price as long as you dont have to drive to Ventura to deliver em

and a damn nice thing to do...

I charge $12 a rack and that includes buying the meat, I would say I am definitely not charing enough! Like some others have said I do it at that price because I always find the pratice helpful, and I can only eat so much BBQ!

Sounds like a win win case to me. You get some free meat to grab some practice, and somebody pays you to cook it. As you know, with a new baby, that family is not going to get any rest for some time. The least they can have going for them is a GREAT Rib dinner.

Are these your friends that are having the baby shower? How far do you have to drive to deliver them or are they willing to pick them up? Will cooking these cause you to miss out on something else you could be doing? How much fuel, rub and sauce will you use in making these?
