    Feels Like Cheating

    A good friend sent me a brisket from Hutchins BBQ for my birthday. It’s fully cooked, in cryovac, and frozen. I kept it in the freezer until today. Pulled it this morning, let it defrost slowly at room temp. Mid-afternoon, fired up the Hasty-Bake with Kingsford Pro and red oak in a modified fuse. Put a water pan on the firebox, heat shield in place. Grate temp running about 275F. The brisket was 35F internal when I put it on in a foil pan. It smells tremendous. I hear that Hutchins makes fantastic Q .... let’s see how it goes when I reheat a previously cooked brisket.

        Cheating, smeating….heat up a pan of beanz and slice those babies up.
        I don't see any problem going with pre-fully cooked brisket.
        Instant gratification.

          So far it’s pretty damn good ... smell, appearance, probe, and tested a small corner. Just waiting for the side dishes now .... and it only took me 2.5 hours from start to resting in the oven :-)

              COVID type birthday, but looks like it was worth the wait.

                    So if you were really cheating you would have said you cooked it from scratch.

                    So I guess we can call it "semi-honest re-heat"

                    How was it?

                        Proof is in the eating, not the cheating!

                        woops, meant to say Pride is in eatin’ not cheatin’.

                          well, as expected, reheated is not the same .... huge compliment from my wife: "I would have rather had your brisket, this is a bit dry, but the bark is pretty good, almost as good as yours."

                            There must be a way to “juice” that up on the reheat!

                            I think I could have reheated in a Texas crutch with some beef stock .... but then lost the bark
