BBQ is really an excellent food for everyone. The texture,
the taste, the smell and the nutrients it provides, are all excellent. However,
the BBQ we get may not always be fresh, and you will not want to eat this kind
of BBQ in such a state. So that is why you need to reheat the BBQ. But the
question is—what is the best way to do so?
First we need to identify the cause of a BBQ to loss its
freshness, and that, is moisture loss. The moment you slice a brisket, the
quality of it begins to drop immediately, and rapidly. It you do nothing and
just leave it there, it will even start to petrify.
This is because when the brisket is exposed the air, the
moisture inside it will start to escape. The moisture loss can quickly
deteriorate the texture of the brisket, and finally, making it impossible to
really put it inside your mouth.
Wrap them up
If you have some BBQ left over, and you want to continue
your enjoyment sometime later, then you must wrap them as airtight as humanly
possible. This can prevent air from reaching the bbq itself, and thus, reduce
the extent of moisture loss of the BBQ. This is an essential preparation step
for reheating the bbq.
Steam the brisket and revive it
When you are ready to resume enjoying your brisket, what you
need to do is to steam it. This is a quick way to bring your piece of BBQ back
into an edible state. You can use a hybrid double boiler, or a veggie steamer
When you are steaming the bbq, the rising steam can provide
moisture to the meat. This can help the meat recover from the moisture loss
happened earlier. Also, the steam provides the heat necessary to warm the meat.
After several minutes, your BBQ is back into life.
Alternative: Boiling water
If you do not have the material required to steam the bbq
meat, then what you may do is to put the BBQ meat in a bottle of boiling water.
But do not just but it right away. You need to use a plastic bag to tightly
seal the meal first. Again, this will provide the heat to warm the meat, while
the water will slowly take the place of the lost moisture of the meat.
However, notes that after all, the steaming method will be
more effective than this method, although this method is not significantly
Enjoy the BBQ
After you have done one of the methods mentioned above, what
you then need to do is just to sit down, and relax, and enjoy the rest of the
BBQ. If you have extra attention, think about why the BBQ can be that yummy.
