How do you moisten cooked brisket?

How do you moisten cooked brisket?

The reason why you should be using broth instead of another liquid, such as water, is that broth mimics the consistency and flavoring of the meat juices that your brisket no longer has. This will give it the best flavor, and your brisket won’t taste watered down if this method ends up reviving the brisket.

How long does it take to cook a brisket at 250 degrees?

I like to plan 90 minutes for every pound of smoked brisket, including the rest or hold temperature, when cooking at 250 degrees Fahrenheit. The total cook can be anywhere from 8 hours to 16 depending on the size of the cut. It is normal that every brisket you cook will vary in time.

How long can you rest brisket in cooler?

A brisket can keep for 8+ hours in a cooler but I think that long of a rest starts to degrade the quality of the meat. The 2-4 (or more) hour rest in the cooler gives you a lot of leeway while cooking. If your brisket is cooking really slow or really fast you will have a nice built in buffer.

Why is my smoked brisket dry and tough?

Brisket contains a lot of connective tissue, which can make it tough. The type of connective tissue in brisket is called collagen. Cook the meat quickly and you get tough, dry meat. Cook a brisket slowly, with some liquid, and the collagen turns into gelatin.

How long does it take to cook a 5 pound brisket?

So if you are cooking a 5-pound brisket (like the one in these photos), you need to plan on 5 hours of cooking time for the brisket plus a little extra time at the end for heating up the sauce. But it works just as well with a 12-pound brisket that would take 12 hours to cook.
