A dude wants to give me 20 briskets and a box of chickens to cook. How much would you charge him?

Simple!

My regular menu price less my actual cost of product (including the time and cost to shop).

First of all.....SCARRY!!! But saying that, maybe you did not give us ALL of the information..??

By "Dude" is this a friend that you KNOW has handled the meats in a safe and proper manner??? Or is the "Dude" just someone that you just met and really have no idea WHERE he is getting or holding the meats prior to turning them over to you for cooking???

Now for the price.....$10 per lb raw weight for the Briskets and although I have never sold chicken this way...probably for simplicity sake, the same price for the chicken.

This price would include using my spices, fuel, time and equipment.

$3,100.00 to cook customer provided meat ?? WOW! Your friggin kidding, right?

Just making sure I am getting that correctly.

I came up with that cost figuring 240 pounds of brisket, and 35 pounds of chicken.

I Think JPM has a more fair method, and I would probably work along those lines too, the source of the meat and proper handling would need to be verified though.

Dude owns his own meat market. He wants me to cook up his stuff for a graduation party.

I was going to tell him $500 for all of it. I'll drop $70 in supplies and 15 hours of my time. Am I missing anything?

Austin's Iron Works BBQ Restaurant does smoking service for meat at $1.10 per pound and $1.50 per pound for turkeys. You don't have a restaurant pit that's already running so your price can be higher. I'm just giving you an idea. When I used to do smoking service, I charged anywhere from $1.50 per pound to $2.00 per pound raw. Minimum of 50 lbs.
$500 is not that far off and a good calculation. Less your supplies from the $500 you are making over $28 per hour. Not a bad pay out.

Great that he owns his own meat market. His savings should be in the raw meat only, and is the difference between what you would pay for it and what he is paying for it. That's catering.

Now you can make adjustments based on the value of the business relationship, since he is a meat supplier.

Now if you are simply operating as a personal chef, i.e., providing a cooking service for a fee plus the cost of food, then the price is what ever you value you time at.

I would say 750 including supplies...IF you are going for 500 then at least have him pay for the supplies...

We would do it along the same line as JPM but would knock off a little more for not having to serve it if that be the case.
