Thanx Steve. I just ran some #'s based on your results. I know it may be boring to some but based on what you say this is what I got...
Our sandwiches are weighed on a digital butcher scale and our sandwiches weigh 6.4 ounces each (.4 on the scale) So...
1)For every 10lb. packer, after cooked will yield 10 sandwiches at a 60% loss.
2)Each sandwich made with a packer costs $2.50 for the meat.
3)For every 6lb. flat our sandwiches cost $1.30 each.
4)For each 6lb. flat, after cooked will yield 10.95 sandwiches at a 27% loss.
It amazes me that you can get more sandwiches AND cheaper sandwiches from a flat than you can from a packer but it's true! It's all about the yield. Not to mention the savings on labor due to no trimming and faster cooking time.
