brisket thaw and cook time table...

some help please.  question is this.  if i thaw the brisket, then inject it, how long can i wait before i cook it? can i keep it in the fridge for a day or two before i cook it?  i have a funny work schedule, but i need to cook for an important meeting.  want to make sure i am on point.  thanks in advance for any advice you all might have for me.

    Can you not cook it right after you inject it?  I'm not aware that having it sit after being injected adds anything.  Or am I missing something?

  • Yes you can but you may lose some of your liquid. As Foghorn says you can inject an cook right away.

    I wouldn't have a problem leaving it in the fridge for a week.  Inject it right before you put it on and you'll have more marinade in it when it cooks.

    Off the subject, @coachbdouble, that sure looks like an OSU Beaver, eh?

  • Ideally the injection should sit in the meat 4-10 hours.

  • I agree... I wouldn't let the brisket set long after injection.... Second, I have completed several cooks for various occasion and I try to stay away from cooking Brisket... My results on brisket are not consistent enough to ensure that the end product will meet the standard I am looking for.... I typically go back to the old standard of Boston Butts.... Easy to cook and very difficult to mess up.

    That is definitely our new logo. What a tough opening weekend. Brings me back to my college days. "Win or lose we still booze."

    You mean, before you start cooking the meat.
