Cool Brisket Yield

Once you've figured out the protion size, use the below as a guidline on how much to cook...
A smoked brisket is going to give you about half the weight in meat of the original piece of meat, meaning if you bought a 12 pound brisket you will get about 6 pounds of meat when you are done. This is because of shrinkage during cooking and the fact that there is so much fat in a typical untrimmed brisket.
