Salmon Question... and Pricing

First question..
I am doing a catering gig for a friend that includes Prime rib and Salmon. In the past I have done my Prime rib at about 300 degrees in the smoker and Normally I grill Salmon on the grill but I thought I would throw it on with the prime rib in the smoker... If I rub it with olive oil and lime pepper and toss on at 300 degrees. How long should it take and will it be good. ( I will probably do a test run this weekend anyway) I figure maybe 20-25 min. (guess)

Second question...
what would you guys charge for this.. it is drop and go for 70 people...
Prime rib (sliced 1/8" thick)
Grilled smoked salmon
steamed broccoli
roasted rosemary potatoes
garden or caesar salad

choice of 2 apetizers
-artichoke spread on french bread
-wings
-marinated tortilinni kabobs
-tortilla spirals

(no drinks, no dessert)

How much per person for 70 people...?

brother you're way too fancy for me. I just do q and such. Of course, since you do this, I'm sure you figure up your costs per serving. Once you get your costs, figure out how much per person it's costing you.

THEN CHARGE EM AS MUCH AS THEY CAN POSSIBLY PAY! That's a spread of good eats there, it depends on prices in your region, but down
here that would be in the range of 16 to 20 bucks a head!

Easy way to figure price is take your total for every thing, And I mean every thing including your shopping time, (gasoline) and multiply by 3 or 4. I'm guessing that if they can afford a menu like the one your offering, Multiplying by 4 shouldn't be a problem.

Well.. they are repeat clients AND good friends. I am makin money but not gouging them. I was figuring a little more than 17 bucks a head.

I likes the fancy stuff...tis a break from Q... and it don't take as long to cook.
