Figure 1/4 pound per person, as there is usually other food involved.

How much brisket do I need to feed about 200 people?

RE: Beef Brisket for 200 People

If you figure 1/4 lb per person, that's 50 lbs if my math is correct. I am not sure what else you are serving with it or how you are making it, but I would add an extra 5-8 lbs to that just so you don't run short. (04/20/2010)
