I have a 15 pound packer in cyrovac in the deep freeze. Is one way better than the other on how to thaw it? I was considering laying it in a cooler filled with water for a while then sticking it in the fridge.

How do you guys thaw them and how long does it take to thaw?

Yeah i know they are prolly best when you go straight from the market to the smoker, but I bought 4 of tjem a while back when they were $.77 a pound Very Happy

Best possible way to thaw is in the fridge on it's own - takes forever to do.

If it's in cryovac, I would put it in a bucket of water. It's not technically safe, but i never got sick doing it.

I plan to smoke it a couple weeks away. I have thawed meat in cyrovac many times by soaking it in water without any problems, so i thought i would do the brisket this way too.

I figger by just puting it in the frig it would take at least a week to thaw.

Put it in the sink if it's small or the bath if it's big then run cold water over it till it's thawed.

Make sure the water is cold, warm or hot water will put the brisket into the danger zone, cold water wont.

Refrigerator - if I take it from freezer to fridge on Saturday or Sunday, it's thawed enough by Wednesday or Thursday to rub and put back in the fridge to cook on Saturday or Sunday.

Bathtub in guest bathroom with cold water otherwise, several hours for me.
