A cooked brisket will last in the refrigerator for up to 4 days if it is properly stored in an airtight container or wrapped tightly in foil or plastic wrap. It’s also a good idea to keep it in the coldest part of your fridge, usually the bottom shelf.

It’s also important to remember that if you are not sure if the garlic honey brisket is still safe to eat, it’s best to err on the side of caution and throw it away. You can also freeze cooked brisket for up to 3 months, in airtight container or well wrapped in foil or plastic wrap. To reheat, let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then reheat it in a preheated oven at 350F degrees until heated through.
