Hey everyone, the plan is to make a brisket and some spare ribs for this weekend. Will be cooking for 8 people. How many LB brisket do you reccomend. This will be my first attempt at a brisket..Thanks!

If you've only got 8 mouths to worry about then you really won't need that big of a brisket. I did a 13lb packer for 25 people and still had plenty of cold cuts for sammys. I'd say you need no more than a 5lb piece.
Happy smoking
Bob.

Your going to loose about half of the weight when trimmed & cooked. So if you want 1/2 lb. portions then you would need about 4 lbs. of cooked brisket. To get that you will need to start out with about an 8 lb. brisket.
