Can I make my already cooked brisket more tender in crock pot?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I smoked a brisket for the first time yesterday. The flavor was great but it wasnt as tender as I would like. I cooked it at 230 degrees until internal temp was 190. It only took 6 hours for a 7lb brisket though. I wrapped it in foil for last couple of hours. 

 

Not sure what I did wrong but would it be possible to reheat in slow cooker for several hours to make it more tender?

Yes, do you have some of the au jus to add to it?

 I have reheated PP and brisket in a crock pot before, just be sure you add some liquid. Whether it will make it more tender is a totally another question, and it very well may, just depends on how long you leave it in there.

I'll give it a shot. I added the au jus I had left and 1 cup of water.

I believe you pulled it a little early.  Get into the mid nineties and then wrap for an hour or so off to the side with a little liquid and you should be good.  Most common mistake is to pull brisket too early.  I like to have mine just a bit past the 200 mark after wrapping.

I think your right. I was just so affraid of overlooking it and making it dry.

In the crock pot with some broth & it will be fine, just heat it to 200-205.

I'm not the expert, but I agree with Al also.  There aren't a lot of options left.  Add liquid, preferrably a natural broth, and let it slow heat a few hours.  You can't go wrong in a crock pot but you do need to be watchful.
