My sons first communion is coming up. I am cooking two briskets ahead of time. We will be heating them up super slow in a crockpot with my injection as a juice. My question is do I cook to full 195 or pull a bit early since I will be heating it up in a crock? The reason for asking I don't want shredded beef. I have never heated briset in a crock pot before.

Hello. I have never re-heated brisket for a party. For left overs yes as it is left overs for heavens sake. I see you have been a member for almost 1 year now but I don't know your experience. Please forgive me if I am preaching to the choir so to speak. When wrapped in foil with an Au Jus, then a blanket or towels, and into a pre heated cooler, those briskets should hold well for 4-6 hours without a reheat. Might be a long day for you but that should allow plenty of time for the service and you can avoid the re heat altogether. Just food for thought. Keep Smokin!
