Depends on what else is being served, but for generous party-type portions I allow 1 full pound raw for each 2 people, especially if it is self serve.

Then this would be plenty. With careful slicing you could do 130 pounds raw, but I would not suggest less.

That's because brisket only yields 9-10 ounces edible per raw pound.
