    Frozen Brisket?

    So, my Dad just texted me to let me know that he just bought a brisket that was on sale for $1.50/lb. He's going to freeze it, and bring it to me this weekend when we see them.

    Any issues with freezing it?

    BFlynn Am I officially the favorite now?

    If its cryovaced I freeze them all the time, never had an issue cooking one.

      If it's still in the cyrovac, I wouldn't bother freezing unless the trip is more than a few hours.

        Ron is right. But I’d have him check the date on the brisket. If it’s still gonna be ok by the time he gets there, I wouldn’t have him freeze it. Keep it on ice for the trip, of course. But when possible, fresh is always better than frozen.

          Check the "processed by" date on the cryovac. You can leave it in the cryovac to wet age for a couple/few weeks.
          If you plan on taking longer than that to smoke it, I'd freeze it.

          I made dad ribs at house, so I'm still ahead of ya, brother

          Yea, if it were me I would wet age for @45 or so days in the fridge if it’s still in the cryovac with all the preservatives intact.

            I freeze them all the time, as my trips to Costco don't usually coincide with times I will be cooking a brisket. Comparing to times I have not frozen versus have pulled it out of the freezer - I can't tell a difference.
