I am going to be doing pulled pork sandwich plates at my church fall festival. I`m looking at charging $5 a plate for a sandwich, 1 oz. bag of chips, pickle spear if they want one and either bottle of water or soda. My question is do you think its being cheap if I offer store brand sodas like a variety of orange, grape, root beer instead of coke products? This is my first event and was wondering what most people do. Thanks

You will get 20-25 plus sandwiches. 25 hardrolls @.95 each generic soda @ $4.50 a case and a jar of pickles
Your cost is like $2.38 each not counting paper goods and bar b cue sauce. $5.00 you r just breaking even
$8.00 is more like it
I was able to get the butt for 1.47 lb. and I have a bakery outlet store that I can score some buns pretty cheap. Going to be smoking 40 lbs. of meat for this event, we will have close to 200.00 in cost for everything, if I can get close to only a 40% loss in cooking weight that will give me 24 lbs cooked meat and 4 oz sandwiches thats a decent amount. With this being our very first time doing this and not sure what the other food will be selling for we wasnt sure what to charge, dont want to get stuck with all that food lol.
