$600.00 is our minimum for a pig.
Pork butts would be much cheaper.

I would be be around that also. The butt thing is a good option but I offered that to a few people that were set on the pig and they don't mind paying for it. Good luck!!

What size pig are you thinking of doing? How much are whole pigs in your area? I can get whole pigs for .79 cents a pound so a 100 pounder would be $79 my time and equipment would be around $300 so total for this would be $379 plus tax and $40 delivery anything after that is gravy!

Deni, you'd spend 12 hrs prepping, cooking, pulling & delivering a pig for $300 ?

90 people-1/2 pound cooked meat per person=90lbs of pork butts at $0.98/lb.
Yield is 45lbs. of pulled pork @ $12/lb
Charge $475 drop off the meat and collect your money.

90 people, is 90lbs of uncooked pork at least. I know $12.99 a pound delivered isnt out of the ordinary, and 600 bucks is about the least id take for 12 hrs of work and product

If you are delivering in pans why do they care if it's a pig or butts? Butts would be a lot less work.
60-80 lbs of butts should do 90 people fine.

I'd go $475 for the butts & $600 for the pig
