Sounds right to me.  On the rare occassion I have left overs, I vacuum seal and when needed, I simply drop in boiling water.

For me it depends on the amount, and how I've stored the brisket. I always slice my brisket while it is warm before storing. If I'm going to freeze it I will vacuum package it. I reheat that by dropping the bag in boiling water and let it simmer until it gets hot.

If it is in the refrigerator, and not vacuum sealed, I put about 1/8" to 1/4" of apple juice, beef broth or a combination of both in the bottom of a pan, layer in the brisket, splash more apple juice or beef broth on top, tightly seal the pan and reheat between 250°F-300°F (but 325°F-350°F is alright also). If you have a cooling rack that will fit in the bottom of the pan so you can keep the meat from touching the bottom of the pan, that will be a plus.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I put the half flat in a glass pyrex with a little bit of water in the bottom and covered with foil. Set for 325F for 35 minutes and it was de-lish!
