Do you think this would work? -smoke the brisket one day for 4-6 hours and then put it in the fridge overnight. -the next morning wrap it in foil or in a pan and bake it for 4-6 hours more, so that it's ready for the afternoon BBQ. You see, we're planning an afternoon BBQ and I don't want to have to get up at 4am just to start the meat. Is it better to put it straight in the oven from the smoker and not let it cool down, or does it really matter? What about cooking it the day before and then just reheating it?
