    I am smokin' spares and abt's for a family gathering in a couple of weeks. I am just wandering what the going price is for abt's. I am buying a 1/2 bushel, that is around 125 japs, not all will be abt's. I split them in half, so of course it will be double (50=100), wrapping with bacon and a lil smokey link and cream cheese.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    I have seen other catering companies charge $20-$22.50  a dozen. They are cored and not halved.  Figure your cost for everything and add your profit. You may end up right around the price I have seen. Hope that helps. BTW This catering company was in Reno NV

    Try cost times X 

     If you can get the stuff to make em cheap x = 3 if it cost ya a bit x=4\

    No less than  $2 each if your making 100. abt's are very labor intensive. more so than most meats you will smoke.

     Just look at most caterers ,they charge at least a dollar for a small square of cake.

     baked in a large sheet pan and sliced.

     ALOT less labor than ABTs
