best way to keep brisket for next day

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Do not feel like an all nighter so I plan on smoking a brisket the day before. I will put brisket on smoker around 7am and hopefully will be done by 7pm then wrap in foil, towel and into cooler. I plan on serving brisket around 3pm.

 

 

What is the best way to keep brisket moist and warm ready to slice?

 

Thanks

I would not try to keep this warm for 20 hours. You might make someone sick. Refrigerate and reheat while covered in a 250* oven for maybe 30-45 minutes. Microwave heating is also acceptable. If you need to travel to the event, put it back in a cooler wrapped in towels to keep warm.

We do this all the time, and it never dries out and always tastes great. We even freeze shredded brisket and reheat with great results.

Cheers!

I'm sure you could, but is it wise? And they're talking 20+ hours. Not worth the risk IMHO.

I have done similar to this, and had no problems.

As long as the meat i held above 140º you are safe.......(ie) the yeti cooler!

i reheat brisket for a big BBQ on memorial day. i'm cooking it a few days in advance, freezing it and re-heating onsite.  i put the brisket in large zip lock bags and put in simmering water until it reaches at least 170 temp.  comes out great!  i use this for sausage and pulled pork.  i recommend not pulling the pork until you reheat.

A crock pot also works well.
