I have done this a number of times. A WSM filled with goodies to make a cook successful--books(Dr. BBQ's newest book Slow Fire would be perfect for a new cook), wood chunks, tools, rubs and sauces, etc. makes a very nice display. That one worked well but it is a high end item.
I have also done in my home hosted dinners for up to 12 on a specified date with a tour of the pits and cooking methods. Tickets bought individually at an auction purchase price starting at $40. Those went way too cheap for the work involved--two meats, three sides, dessert, wine and beer. Should been $75 minimum,it's for charity after all! Everyone loves this though.
This year I offered delivered to your home for 8-pulled pork, beans, greens, and dessert for $150. Sold two. They need to tell me well in advance of when they want it.
Good luck, let us know what you do and how it sells. Mary Ann
