+ 1 here. My guests always think I am being stingy when I only slice a small plate to place on the table. I have to educate them by telling them that I have the whole brisket available to eat, but don't want it to dry out before they are ready for 2nds or 3rds. Plus if I any left over I would rather it be a solid piece of meat instead of slices left over.
