[quote=Buster Dog BBQ;775800]So a buddy of mine wants me to smoke a brisket for him to add into his chili. I was just going to vacuum pack it when I am done. However, I got to thinking. If he is going to make it on Thursday, should I leave the brisket whole, or have him get it after it has sat in the cooler for a couple hours then take home and cut how he wants then?[/quote
Depends on when you're gonna smoke it for him...If you're doing it a few days before I'd just leave it whole (minus a few test slices
) and put it in the fridge...that way he can cut it up to his own size. If you're doing it today I'd freeze it.
