Brisket yield varies, but 50% should be a conservative estimate.

For 200 people:
1/4 # each is 100 # pre-cook.
3/8 # each is 150 # pre-cook.
1/2 # each is 200 # pre-cook.

I would be looking at the 150 # level--maybe 11-13 packers depending on the size you can get.

Your yield may vary :-D

As the Kapn said, you'll need 100 lbs.

My experience is that nobody eats just 1/4 pound of free meat. 1/2 pound is the proper number.

200 people @ 1/3 pound cooked = 67 pounds cooked = 134 pounds raw. IF it's the last thing in the serving line. BTW - It also equals $1608 with buns and sauce. If it's a donation, get a tax receipt for anything less than that amount.
