    Leftover Brisket Recipes

    I've had a 14 pound packer sitting in my freezer for a while, waiting for the right time. I've decided that time will be this weekend. But it's just me, my wife, and my one-year-old around to eat it so there will be leftovers aplenty. Once it's cooked and out of the cambro I plan to slice some to eat immediately, but I'm looking for some different ideas on what to do with all those leftovers (I plan to freeze some and keep some out to eat over the next few days).

    What are your favorite leftover brisket recipes? Tacos? Nachos? Chili? Shepherd's pie?

    The brisket will be cooked on a GMG Daniel Boone using GMG Premium Gold Blend pellets (as I think that is all I have at the moment) which is an oak, hickory, maple blend. The point and flat will be separated so I can pull each individually at the right temp.

          lots of probes.

        Try it in a pot pie, or tacos, or burritos, or chili, or a sub sandwich, or a Philly cheese steak. In other words, anywhere you would use sliced or chopped beef.

          MCS wish list - Lone Star Grillz off set

        I got a 14lber wet aging in my fridge. We're just 4 right now. Too much meat for us too. I'm going to split the flat and the point. I'm going to make pastrami w half or 3/4s of the flat and use the other part to add to burger mix w some picanha. The point i'll bbq - that's really what I want to eat from the brisket anyway. I'll have leftovers from these two cooks as well. Like the above suggestions i'll make tacos, quesadillas, and enchiladas.

          A member posted a great sounding chili recipe the other day that used chuckies but I think chunks of brisket would do well.

                        Chili or hash (usually both) are at the top of the leftover brisket menu.
