Brisket done early

  1. My brisket is at 205. 5 hours before I expected . It must have got hot over the night. So my question is. It has cooked down now how do I reheat it? Just put it in the oven for a bit?
     
  2. Cooled down** not cooked down

    You can wrap in aluminum foil with a bit of moisture and place in an oven.  At 205 IT I guess you intend to pull it?  If so put in a crock pot with a bit of finishing sauce.
     
  4. I don't have a crock pot big enough for it. I did wrap it in foil and put on a baking sheet in the over about an hour before I'm going to turn the oven on to 200. Do u think that will work? With out drying it out?

    Add a bit of apple juice or beef broth and it will be fine.  If worried about bark may place the meat on a rack and just keep it out of the liquid.  Let the steam warm it up.   I know a lot of famous Delis warm pastrami and other sandwich meats with steam

    You'll do good with it wrapped and in a pan in the Oven. Don't worry about juice , it will be in the pan and can be re-absorbed some on resting . The remaining Juice will be your Au-jus .

    Look at Chef JJ's recipe for Au-jus.

    have fun and . . .

  8. Turned out pretty good flavour was great. The very end of the flat dried out a little but that was only maybe an inch. The rest was awesome thanks for the help guys
