How to Reheat Brisket in the Oven

Brisket is prone to losing its tenderness after serving but a conventional oven can do a bang-up job of reheating your meat as long as you take a couple of precautions.

1. Preheat the oven. Start by setting your oven to 325°F. You might be tempted to turn the heat up higher so you can sink your teeth in sooner, but higher temperatures will cause the meat to lose moisture and you’ll end up chewing on shoe leather instead.

2. Prep the meat. Pull that brisket from the fridge and let it rest at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes while the oven preheats. Cold meat doesn’t warm through as evenly, and you don’t want to add to the overall reheating time because you had to pop the brisket back in the oven to bring the center up to temperature.

3. Wrap the brisket. Cover the baking tray tightly with a double layer of foil, crimping around the edges of the tray to ensure a tight seal. Give the foil a once over for holes and send the brisket to the oven.

4. Wait (and then wait some more). Heat brisket in the oven for one hour if whole, and 20 minutes if it has already been sliced. When the time is up, remove the meat from the oven, unwrap and dig in.
