Hello! And thank you for ordering from Micklethwait Craft Meats. Now that you have some tasty Texas BBQ at home, let's help you heat those meats! For reaheating meat, we highly recommend using a meat thermometer to temp your meal just right! 

WHOLE BRISKET

  • If your brisket frozen, THAW, brisket in refrigerator 1–2 days. 

  • HEAT: Brisket comes wrapped in food-grade plastic and butcher paper. Additionally,  wrap in foil. Bake at 250°F for 2 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees.

  • If you need to cook the brisket while it's frozen add 1 hour to cooking time. 

  • Cooking times vary on ovens so give yourself plenty of time! 

  • SLICE: Now that your brisket is nice and hot, it's time to slice it up! You always want to slice a brisket against the grain, but with a whole brisket, the direction of the grain changes throughout. To help, we recommend watching this quick video from the good folks at Thermo Works. Here's the link also: https://youtu.be/eUp1-fwrLNc
