Default Pre-cooked brisket?

Last week buddy of mine asked me to smoke 60# of brisket and 40# of chicken. He is providing the meat. No problem I say. Gives me an excuse to sit up all night, drink some beer, and play with fire.

Yesterday he calls and says his wife had a change up. Says he will just need the chicken. Tells me his wife tried an already cooked brisket from the grocery store. All you do is heat it in the oven and add the bbq sauce.

Told me his wife said it was very tender. I have never had one but I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it is probably overcooked.

Anyone ever try one?

Never heard of or seen a pre-cooked brisket except maybe if it's corned beef. I don't know .....I woulda kind of took that as a slap in the face. Has your buddy and his wife ever tasted your BBQ? I can't imagine that a pre-cooked store bought brisket can compare to the real deal.....better get a deposit on the chicken before the wife decides to buy rotiserrie chickens and throw some BBQ sauce on them.

They sell precooked, sliced brisket in the stores here. It is vacuumed packed. It's a lot more expensive than buying packers and doing it yourself so I don't understand why they would want to do it. I've never tried it so I can't speak for the taste.

Never heard of or seen it around here, but I have never really looked for it either & I agree with Cajun that it has to be a lot more $$$! I think you need to have a long serious talk with your buddy & his wife about BBQ

A buddy of mine ordered a case through a restaurant for an Oktoberfest block party. These were flats, oven cooked and I believe had some sort of injection after they were done so they would produce a little liquid during the reheat. They required about an hour or 90 minutes of reheating. The texture was okay, I didn't care for the seasoning so all-in-all the finished product was really only sandwich grade brisket. They borrowed a trailer mounted gas cooker (really suited for cooking burgers and dogs) and did the reheat in there, giving the impression they were fresh cooked.

He was satisfied because the convenience and the reheat time justified the higher price.

OK, I guess if you like that sort of thing. Myself, I know what real Q is and can't stand fake **** with liquid smoke cooked in an oven.

Reminds me of those individually wrapped and already washed potatoes, or the pre-cooked and shelled eggs, or the vacuum packed pound of ground beef already cooked "for your convenience". Just goes to show ya....people will buy anything.

I not too much of a slap, because I do not believe they really know what BBQ is. They have had my chicken before but not my brisket. From what I can tell, they made the switch for cost rather than the real deal. When I deliver the chicken, I am gonna check out the brisket.

I second the cooking a brisket anyway. That way you get plenty of Beer time and not get cheated. Send a little sample to his wife so she can kick herself for eating mas produced meat.

Ok, I delived the chicken yesterday. When asked about the pre-cooked brisket, I was directed to two large crockpots on the counter. I knew this was gonna be bad and it was hard to keep an open mind.

The slices were thinner than the thickeness of a pencil and I was told this is how it came out of the package. The ring of fat on each piece proved the cap was not trimmed off after cooking. The meat was submerged in sauce and liquified fat. And there was no bark.

It did not even look appitizing at all but I knew I still had to taste it to close out this chaper. As a piece was being pulled from its tomb of juices, it broke apart. Obviously over cooked and/or over heated. At this point I did not even care which. I put a piece on my mouth. It disolved almost right away. I could not taste the flavor of the meat, only the diluted tomato based sauce.

I feel bad for my friends. They tried to save some money on their dinner by cutting a few corners and I do not believe it worked out.

The next time I do up a brisket, I will bring them some to show them what real brisket is like.

Kinda like that sign in the tattoo shop that reads, "Good work isn't cheap, and cheap work isn't good."

Sounds pretty disgusting. Sorry they tried to take a shortcut and was dissapointed ,but I just couldn't imagine that it would be anywhere close to the real deal. I think once you take them some of your Brisket, thier error will become even more apparant ,and they will know better for the next time!! Thanks for the feeback!
