IF YOUR GONNA HAVE SIDES, A 90 TO A 100 POUND HOG WOULD BE A PLENTY. AS FAR AS PRICE , YOU COULD CHARGE BY THE PLATE, OR THE PRICE OF THE HOG PLUS YOUR TIME.

I would recomend cooking some shoulder for 40 people if you could.
A whole Hog is a lot of work plus a lot of meat for 40 people. Well what I mean is, where I live they wont slaughter and deliver/dress a pig under 100 pounds. Thats a lot of meat for 40 people. If they insist on wanting a whole hog then you need to charge extra for the extra meat and work.

But to answer your question I would charge extra for the extra meat you have to pay, plus tack on a hundred bucks or 150 pending on who these folks are and how excited you are about pleaseing them.

Party On.

Rich I am averaging about the same. I normally do around a 120lb Hog and do alot of parties for 100+ and seem to have about the same if not a tad bit more left-over.
I always plan for 1/2 pound per person too unless there is other meat being cooked. I also notice that a lot of true BBQ fans are skipping the bun these days and going for a plate of Q. I prefer it that way too.

I usually plan on 1lb. per person- an 85-100 pounder normally feeds a group of 100 hungry BBQ fans! I usually do marinated boneless chicken breast to go with. I have a client that wants a Pig Roast, along with three extra racks of ribs, Brisket, Chicken, Slaw, Potato Salad, Fresh Fruit Salad, and Grilled Flatbread! Laughing Price $17.00 per person for a party over 75 guests. Very Happy

Hey Mike,
I hear where you are entering the Big Pig Jig this fall.
I wish you lots of luck, who knows I may come down to sneal a peak so I can see what this is all about. The food network had it on tv this afternoon from a year or two back.

Take care.

I'm no expert but, If I were cooking for no more than forty people I would go with Boston Butts. Less clean up and in most cases no as much left over. There is a guy in my neck of the woods that all he will cook is butts when he caters. If you can catch them on sale!

Not bad ideas guys. I charge more for parties for groups smaller than 75. However, if they want a pig roast for 40, I will do that too! Some people want what they want, and have a wallet to support it. I have a client that paid for an extra large pig because they wanted the leftovers! Very Happy
