Default Freezing Brisket

I need to pre smoke a brisket for next weekend.... what is the best way to freeze it? Freeze it whole? Slice it first?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Do you have a vacuum sealer?

slice it up. vaccum seal the slices. freeze or refridgerate. when preparing get a big pot of water boiling and throw the bags in the water until they are hot. should be just as if they came off the smoker.

I slice and seal brisket pretty often. I just make sure to get some juice in there, too.

I slice & seal and seal whole, both come out fine. Don't know if you have a kohls near you but they usually have good sealers cheap and you can usually find a 20% off coupon.

I like slides and sealed, then you can reheat it in the bag really quick. If you reheat the whoel brisket, it takes a while and can cause more dryness IMHO.
