Reheating Barbecued Brisket:

An Easy Guide From Hutchins BBQ Experts

Smoky, tender, flavorful and delicious are just a few words describing barbecued brisket, a unique cut of beef that's become an iconic cornerstone of barbecue culture in the Lone Star State. Hutchins BBQ experts say it's important to know how to reheat beef brisket correctly, so it’s just as tasty and tender as when it was first cooked. 

Reheating In Oven

  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Cover shallow baking dish with aluminum foil and spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place brisket in dish, and spoon in some liquid or plain water to keep meat from drying out.
  • Cover dish tightly with foil. 
  • Bake brisket for 30-45 minutes or until heated through. Reheating time may vary depending on size of brisket leftovers.

Reheating In Microwave

Place brisket on microwave-safe dish, and cover it with damp paper towel (which helps keep the meat from drying out during the reheating process). Heat brisket on high for 1-2 minutes or until heated throughout. A small amount of water can be placed in the bottom of the dish with the brisket before covering it with a damp paper towel.

Reheating On Stove

Find a pot that's large enough to accommodate the brisket, and place the meat in the pot with a small amount of liquid. One-quarter to half an inch of water in the pan bottom should work fine. Cover pot with a lid and warm the brisket over medium heat until it is heated through, stirring occasionally. Depending on the size of the cut of meat, the reheating time will vary. However, 10 minutes or so is a good rule of thumb for a single serving. Monitor the pot during the reheating to ensure the water doesn’t boil off.
