For sandwiches, I would figure about 20 people per brisket. IMHO brisket is made to be sliced unless you are going to grind the whole thing and make chopped beef. I would slice it the day of and place it in a foil pan with it's own juice, some beer, and a beef bullion cube. I would cover this foil pan and place it into your smoker or an oven to warm.

Sliced seem to go a lot farther too with slices most people try not to look like a pig but with pulled meats everybody packs it on!
