Default Holiday Smokin...

Yo, Brethren:
The season is neigh upon us for smoking Holiday meals. I have a few family, friends & neighbors that are inquiring as to the cost and I have no idea what to say. Got an idea, let's hear it? - I'm all ears!

Some Brethren will say charge 2-3 times the cost of the meat but ultimately you need to figure what cooking for the day will cost you.

Wood, coal, seasonings, foil, & most of all your time. It all costs.

I know I was refering to what the other guy said.If I were you I would count heads fairly early,figure out what your cooking and guestimate how much you need then make a educated guess on how much everything is gonna cost.

Normally when I make big holiday meals I say it's gonna cost bout 100 bucks for 20 people but it normally cost bout 150 and I end up with way too much food

Instead of smoking it for them, invite them over and share the knowledge. Then they will be impowered to smoke meats for their friends
