Pig price
I'm trying to get a handle on pricing a pit cooked pig. What would you guys charge for a 130 pound (dressed wt) pulled and served? This includes several sauces. NO rolls, sides or drinks......just chaffing dish meat served.

Depends what price you pay for the pig. I did one a while back I paid $2.10 per lb and sold the job at $5 per lb. Didn't make a killing, but they were satisfied.

How about $800 for what was described above?

Big Ron 06-12-2009 07:57 AM

If they will agree to it I would say go for it. Here are some photos of the little guy I did. He was only about 40 lbs. Good luck
