Default Price for a prepaired Brisket?

I'm cooking three Briskets and a half a dozen slabs of ribs. My question is, what is the going rate for a 12lb prepaired Brisket? or is there a formula that full time caterers use? It will be delivered ready to be reheated.

Thanks in advance.

John

Most people try to get three times what you have in it. Don't forget fuel and seasonings.

Strickly just for reference Famous Dave charges $15.99 a pound where I live and $12.99 at the Long Beach location according to their online menu.

If you sell by the lb, you must have a certified scale.

$15/lb or 3x total cost of brisket.
