  1. Is the serving size really a half pound of brisket per person? Had hoped to serve brisket to a crowd, but is this how much I should plan for?! Does it shrink more than most meat during cooking?Or are the 5 pounds of brisket called for then divided into two freezer meals, each serving 8-10 people? Thanks!

    1. The brisket cuts are quite large and pretty fatty so yes this is the right amount. It does shrink quite a bit though but will definitely serve quite a few people.

    1. We haven’t tested this recipe for slow cooker but I have to imagine that it would be do just as well in there for 5-6 hours (or up to 8).
