I've done small parties in the passed for friends, A friend's uncle asked me to smoke pork butt for his party, he also said for me to name my price. I don't want to rape him, but I also don't want to take a loss as well. I've gone on the internet to see what people charge per pound. Most people get 8 to 12 dollars a pound, now the question I have would be, is that price the cost of the meat and smoking it? or is that just smoking it and they pay for the meat? If anyone has comments on this please pass it on thanks. I've attached a pic from my friends wedding 11 9.5 pounds pork butt.
