someone asks me to cook a brisket for X amount of people, no sides, I charge them $12 a pound.. I usually pay about $1.80-$1.90 a pound

Someone asks me to do a butt, $11 a pound... usually pay $1.40, $1.50 a pound

Ribs, BB's $22 -$23 depending on how many they want, Spares, $ 18-$20 depending on how many they want... Sapres I pay anywhere from $1.49 to $1.99 a pound

Chicken $5 a person... I usually cook a whole bird, then 1/2, 1/4 it or 1/8th it myself.... and, I throw in the breast as well.. good selling point... and , I cut the breast about 3/4 of the way, and leave the wing attatched to the last small piece of breast ..actually more econimical to buy a whole bird, and cut it your self.. Been paying about 60 cents a pound for the whole bird

Wow!!! Those are some healthy prices. God bless you for getting it. i get $8/lb for pulled. Of course, that's what I ask. Supppose i could ask for more but most of these are for friends anyways and their word of mouth is priceless.
