Default Cooked meat = how much raw meat

I am making brisket chili. It calls for 2 pounds or ground meat. If I substitute cooked brisket for the ground meat, how many cups of chopped brisket will I need. Thanks.

Not to sound obvious, but weigh it.

Put as much as you would like. Amounts in ay recipe are just a guide line. I change amounts all the time. The amount of meat to add is really no big deal. Problem solved.

Guestimate according to the old proverbial saying, "A Pints a Pound the World Around"

2 cops make a pint, so 4 cups would equal 2 pounds...

That will get you close...

Thanks, you guys. I know the the practical answer is 2 cups to the pound. I was getting anal about it. Over thinking it. I need an excuse anyway to get a scale. I smoked a brisket last night for chili today. It was 13 pounds untrimeed. I was shocked just now at the cooked yield. I cubed up the brisket and ended up with 6 pounds of cubed brisket.

That sounds about right for yield. I just keep adding meat until it looks right.
