Leftover Brisket?

Last weekend I smoked a 13.5 pounder and pulled her off around Noon last Monday (18hr cook, my best brisket to date, unfortunately no pics).

Still have plenty of leftovers mostly chopped up w/ some big chunks of the flat and point. So it's been in the fridge 5 days now, will this puppy keep past that or should I just toss it at this point? Thanks in advance.


P.S. Sorry to hear about Car Wash Mike. Never had the pleasure of meeting him, but I know he was one of the forum's mainstays, and I also know from personal experience that his recipe and method of Eggin' babybacks is outstanding!

    Generally you have 7 to 10 days. I stick with 7. You could freeze it.

    Last one I did, I sliced the leftovers and put enough for one or two sandwiches in vac bags with some bbq sauce. Sealed them up and put 'em in the freezer. To reheat, I let a bag thaw, then poked a few holes in the vac bag and nuked it. Mighty tasty - much better than reheated butt!
