Ok my Mother in law loves my brisket and asked me to make it for her Christmas party. I have to smoke the day before because I don't have time on Christmas. I am smoking 5 1/2 pound flats. Sooo should I slice before I refrigerate or refrigerate whole. If I refrigerate whole should I slice before reheating or reheat whole. I am afraid that reheating whole might take too long and dry out. On the other hand slicing will reheat faster but will it dry out more?

Any help/tips/experience would be appreciated.

Thanks and Merry Christmas to All !!! Very Happy

If it were me I would wrap in foil and refrigerate whole overnight, then Christmas morning I would slice, re-wrap in foil, and heat.

Yup, perfect, although you may want to add 1/4 cup of apple juice or beef broth. The brisket will suck that extra moisture right up when it rests, after re-heating.

Thank you Stan and Jack for the tips. I foiled at 160 and pulled at 195, then refrigerated still wrapped in foil after 2-3 hours. I mop before foiling so there was a lot of juice in it. Next day I sliced and collected all the liquid from the foil packs and put in this new electric skillet I bought (check it out on this link) http://www.amazon.com/Presto-06852-16-Inch-Electric-Skillet/dp/B0007XRTDG/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1198816963&sr=1-1
It came out wicked good and very moist.

Thanks Again Exclamation
