Brisket for 70 guest

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi, My name is tom and I am new to the forum.

Question , how many lbs of packer brisket will I need to smoke for 70 people in  a Char-Broil Deluxe Digital Electric Smoker that I just got . I plan on trimming all but 1/4 " fat from the packer and hope there is enough room in the smoker. Please assist 

 thanks, Tom

Welcome Tom!  Brisket for 70 is quite a challenge on a smoker you just got!  If you figure a 1/2lb per guest, 2 18 lb packers should cover it.  Best of luck with that smoke, keep us posted.

Hi Tom!

 

:welcome1:  to SMF!

 

Glad to have you aboard!

 

I would figure about 1/3 lb. per person.

Which means you need about 25 lbs. of meat.

You will need to start with about 50 lbs. of raw brisket to yield 25 lbs. of finished product.

I would look for 4 briskets in the 12-14 lb. range.
