How much lump do I need to start with for a 17 Lb brisket?

      I have a xl BGE and am trying a 17lb brisket and also have a CyberQ Wifi to go low and slow,.. How much Lump will I need to start with as I dont want to over fill the Egg but also dont want to have to add more mid stream.
     I have read some of the other threads here about 1 hour or so per lb and could use any advice along those lines also.
 planning on cooking 4 racks of ribs after the brisket comes off. 
 Thanks for any input.
