BTW, This Is Not Your Pork, one of the traditional ways to eat brisket over here is with sliced raw onion, pickles and soft white bread. That sandwich doesn't fall too far off the mark. If you haven't tried it, I happen to like sliced yellow onions, bread and butter pickles and white bread (or a good baguette) with brisket. And as odd as it might sound, a good German mustard on the side. I suggest you give it a try.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
