In a commercial setting (i.e. a small BBQ joint) what is the "proper" serving presentation for Brisket? I assume thin slices, in Texas you get a pickle and a slice of bread as well. I am looking for traditional presentation ideas.

Is there such a thing as a Brisket sandwich?

Yes, sometimes and yes.

Thicker slices (1/4" or so) is better if your brisket is moist enough to handle it.

Serve it however they want it, on bread, with bread, on a sammie with provolone and a couple onion rings.

I think that med slices on thick white bread soaked with au jus is the more favored serving I have presented.

With sides, w/o sides depending on appetite.

there is at my house.:msn-wink:

I've seen them served as a chopped beef or sliced beef sammie.
