Ha. Didn't realize brisket = shredded beef. I think my Jewish holidays might get more flavorful soon :)

I know - I was surprised to see brisket here as opposed to flank or london broil or something that gets shreddier when you cook it for a while. Incidentally I made some brisket last week in the slow cooker and now I'm wondering if I should use the leftovers in tacos. A very San Diego Rosh Hashanah!
