Travel Question


Joined Jan 13, 2021
Christmas Travel Meat question: We are traveling to Colorado to meet my son and his family from CA. for Christmas. I plan on smoking a brisket and some tri tips to take with us. I will have a sous vide to warm the meat. My question is, do I slice the meat before vacuum sealing or not? Anyone have experience with this? Thanks.

I concur. A big Butt is best Pulled and reheated. But the smaller/thinner Tri-Tip and Brisket will be juicier reheated then sliced...JJ
