FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q:  I have 100 guests, I want your truck at the event, and my budget is $700. What can I get?

A:  Unfortunately, it would be nearly impossible for us to provide food to that many guests for your budget. BBQ is pricey considering the type of menu item(s) you choose, the amount of fuel (wood) we use to cook the food, the labor required, gratuity, and sales tax. If you want our truck on-site, we also have to factor in the cost of getting our truck there, how many staff we need to serve your guests, and mileage (if applicable). Using the example above, to serve 100 people within a 2 hour window, we’d need:

  • at least 4 servers at a rate of $12 per hour, with a minimum of 4 hours (2 hours for setup and tear down and 2 hours service). That’s $48 times 4, for a total of $192.
  • The food truck on-site fee is $150.
  • We subtract these fees from your budget, which comes to $358.00, leaving you with $342.00.  We estimate the gratuity to be about $53.75.
  • Your food budget is calculated by subtracting the above fees ($395.75) from your budget, which comes to $298.63.
  • Finally, we subtract sales tax from your food budget, which is $23.52.
  • This leaves you with a total of $280.73, or $2.99 per person.
One example of a realistic estimate for 100 guests would be about $2,575.02.  This would give your guests half a pound of brisket, half a pound of pulled pork, two sides, bread, BBQ sauces, and all the dinnerware, as well as cover all the fees and taxes required.
 
Another example would be about $1,915.  This would give your guests 3 pork spare ribs, a quarter pound of chicken, two sides, bread, BBQ sauces, and all the dinnerware, as well as cover all the fees and taxes required.
 
We will definitely work with you to provide you with an estimate that fits your budget, but please understand we have costs that are mostly out of our control, and we are providing you and your guests with some of the most delicious BBQ you’ve ever had.
