Default How much to charge for smoked brisket

I have 3 different people that want each want a brisket next Sunday. No sides, just brisket! I haven't figured out if I am doing them on the Fatboy or my FEC 100. But I will smoke it & slice it. I plan on using a whole packer's for all of them. I figure I will put them in large tin foil trays after slicing. What should I charge? I thought $60 to $70 per brisket??

That depends on the weight. I think you are selling yourself short though, unless they are small briskets.

brisket packers at RD here is $1.89 for IBP and $2.09 for Sterling(CAB)

28 -32 bucks for the brisket. Cooked figure you will yield 6 lbs on a 15lb brisket.

12$/lb, thats 72 bucks.

I charged 16$/lb for brisket(and 12$ for butt) around here during the summer for a few drop offs and no one flinched.

If you are slicing be careful as the Brisket will start drying out quick. I Vacuum seal as soon as sliced and give them a disposable pan & lid to keep warm. I tell them to keep in the oven at about 150' until time to searve and then slice and dump bag prior to serveing. If your Brisket is truely good, don't sell less that $16/lb (Finish Weight, not green weight), as your yield will be 50%.

Your in Chi town 15-17 dollars a pound sounds about right. That should cover your cost and put a few bucks in your pocket for the effort.
