A friend of mine picked up a USDA prime full packer brisket for me a few days ago.  Since I was working from home today I decided to fire up the UDS and through the Brisket on last night.   Then I get a call from my wife saying that we are supposed to be going out to dinner tonight.  

I have never smoked anything and not eating it right away :).  My question is do I just let it rest in my Faux Cambro until it is relatively cool and then just throw it in fridge?  Should I let it rest for a few hours and then cut it up like I normally would and then throw the fully prepared slices in the fridge?  

If I store it in the fridge whole should I heat it back up in the over to 200 before slicing or just slice cold and then reheat?  

Thanks for any suggestions,

Don't flirt with the 140 degree threshold in the "Faux Cambro", as that's the beginning of the danger zone.  Either slice some, cut it in half and freeze some, put the whole thing in the fridge/freezer:  get through the 40-140 degree danger zone as quickly as possible.  If your container can assuredly keep the temp above 140 for the duration until you have time to deal with it, fine.  If it were me, I'd get it cooled as quickly as possible if I weren't going to eat it right away.  My $0.02.
