How to Reheat a Brisket

Reheat a brisket so it stays moist and tender, just as when it first came out of the oven or smoker. Reserving the juices when you cook it makes reheating easier, but you can use other liquids, if necessary. Chilled brisket is actually easier to cut so the reheating stage is the ideal time to cut it into slices. After you pull it out of the oven, when provided enough moisture and the appropriate cooking time, it should look and taste just as good as when it was fresh.

Remove the brisket from the refrigerator.

Skim off any fat from the brisket with a spoon.

Place the brisket on a cutting board.

Cover the baking pan tightly with foil.

Step 8

Place the pan in the preheated oven and cook for about 30 minutes, or until the meat is heated throughout and it reaches 165 degrees on a meat thermometer.
