Help... amount of brisket needed for crowd

I have bragged about my brisket too much and I am on the hook to do brisket for my small family reunion.

It is 22 people (16 adults, 6 kids). This would be just for sliced/pulled brisket. There will be additional sides to go with it.

Could you guys help me calculate about how much I would need?

Thanks BGE nation!

    I figure about 4-6 oz per person base on what sides to. hope this helps.

    If you figure 1/3 lb per person, you will need about 8 lbs of cooked brisket. A typical 14-15lb brisket should be enough for you.
