Anyone have a recommendation for an electric deli type slicer for briskets?

Why not look into an electric carving knife? Unless of course you're after something more commercial that has the circular blade.

I have a nice one for home, but a flat is really too big to be sliced on one of those, the "slide" does not go back far enough to allow slicing through the widest portion of the brisket when slicing against the grain.

I use an electric knife instead.

Thanks for the suggestions of using electric knifes, which is what we have been using, in fact we had to rotate through 4 to keep them cool. With our current volume we need something similar to a deli slicer, thus the reason we are seeking experienced input from actual users, prior to puchase.

I use a deli slicer and agree about not getting the whole flat on at one time. I normally cut mine into sections to get it to work better. Also, cut the meat after it has been the fridge a bit. Cold brisket cuts really nice once the fats have firmed up a bit. If you do not want to go the expense of a Hobart slicer, Lowes has a semi commercial one for about $150.
