Reheating Meats

Saddleback’s Recommended Reheating Process – MEAT

We recommend using Servsafe procedures when reheating food. This will help eliminate any chance of sickness and also leads to what we feel is the best end product. Use this as your cheat sheet anytime you have leftover BBQ, whether it be from Saddleback or your backyard. These are methods we’ve developed over the years that have proven to consistently give delicious results.


  1. Wrap entire brisket in plastic wrap
  2. Put 3/4 of an inch of water in a large pan.
  3. Place wrapped brisket in pan
  4. Place aluminum foil over the entire pan, make sure all sides of the foil are tight
  5. Place in oven at 350 degrees
