    Let me start out by saying Hello and thanks for having such a great website. I have been lurking for awhile now and thought it was time to start joining in.
    I am 41 yrs old and live in the great state of Ohio. I starting smoking meats a couple yrs ago after finding a vertical smoker that was brand new at a yard sale for ten bucks. Best $10 I've ever spent and have been hooked ever since.
    Now on to a question for you guys. Were having a little get together for Sunday and of course its going to storm all day Sat so I put my brisket on to cook this morning and should be finishing up about 10 or 11 tonight. I have never smoked one a day early before and don't know the best way to reheat it with out drying it out. So do I reheat it whole or would it be better to slice it up and reheat that way?
    Also I had my first taste of a fattie a little while ago. Now thats some good eating right there.[​IMG] Thanks for the great idea. I just put a little cheddar cheese in the middle and put some rub on it. I figured I would post my first pics.

    Thanks for any help you can give me with the reheating issue.

    Welcome to SMF!

    I would slice the brisket and then reheat in a crock pot, or in the oven set at 250 in a foil covered pan.

    Hope this helps.

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Thanks for the comments. So when you use the crock pot do do put the bbq sauce in there with the meat?

    I use a finishing sauce, but yes, liquid is good!

    Raw, I am no expert but I would slice the brisket, put in alluminum pan, cover with any left over juice and tent with foil. Reheat in oven. Generally when eating brisket around these parts BBQ sauce is always served on the side. Hope this helps.

    I prefer the oven reheat for anything with cheese in it. Personally I can control the cheese melt better.

    Yum! That fattie looks so good!

    Thanks for the crockpot tip - I was wondering that myself because this is the first time I've ever smoked a brisket the day before the event.
