How much brisket do I need to feed 200 people?
By Grammy from San Angelo, TX
Figure 1/4 pound per person, as there is usually other food involved.
I am preparing a meal for 180 - 200 people. How many pounds of brisket, frozen green beans, and of potatoes will I need?
Allow 1 potato for each person. 1/4 pound of meat, and 1 cup of beans.
Here is a great site that has a long list of amounts of different foods needed to serve 100 which can be divided to serve as many as needed.

How much brisket do I need to feed about 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)
